School Improvement Council- All Welcome

The School Improvement Council (SIC) at Sevier Middle School welcomes your participation at our monthly meetings.  SICs are mandated by law and exist in every public school in South Carolina.  The goal is to bring together parents, educators and community stakeholders to work collectively to improve our schools.  We serve as an advisory committee to the Principal, staying abreast of school programming, providing feedback on priority objectives, and lending help as requested.  Being a part of the SIC is easy and rewarding.  Members develop a deeper understanding of the issues affecting our schools and have an opportunity to share their thoughts and ideas.  Please consider your own participation on the Sevier Middle School SIC, held every first Friday of the month at 12:40pm.

I have been a coach with Greenville county schools since 2012. I come from a management position in urgent care as well as post operative procedures. My husband and I both grew up in Greenville but we yell "Roll Tide!" on the weekends, as both of our families are from Alabama!

Sex Education Classes

As part of the Greenville County Schools Health Education Curriculum, students taking  PE/Health Education at Sevier will take part in an age appropriate, abstinence based Sexuality Education Course.  Students may be excluded from the sexuality education component of the Health Education Program if the curriculum conflicts with the family’s beliefs.   Prior to instruction, schools mail parents information regarding the opportunity to preview all sexuality education instructional materials, and the parent’s right to exempt his/her child from any portion or the entire unit.   Sevier will have its Sexuality Education materials on display from 9/18/17 - 9/29/17 for 1st Semester classes and 1/2 - 1/12-18 for Second Semester classes .  First Semester PE students will participate in this Sex Ed. class 10/23/17 - 11/3/17 for girls and 11/6/17 - 11/17/17 for boys.    Second semester classes will be held from 2/5/18 - 2/16/18 for boys and from 4/9/18 - 4/20/18 for girls.  Opt-Out forms have been mailed home.  Access a copy of the  Opt-Out form  or visit the front office for a hard copy.  Parents wishing to exempt their child from the Sexuality Education Course must complete the Opt-out form and deliver it to the front office in person.  Students may not turn in Opt-Out forms.
