State of the Schools Address
Orangeburg Consolidated School District Five held its 5th annual State of the Schools Address on Tuesday, October 15, 2015. Brittany Bloome, a senior at North Middle/High School, had the honor of presiding as Mistress of Ceremonies, while seniors Austin Gleaton and Robert Gordon served as ushers for invited guests. Molly Spearman, South Carolina Superintendent of Education, was the guest speaker at the event. She spoke on a new accountability program for student success: "I believe, and many parents agree with me, that we've been placing too much emphasis on just one test, a high stakes test. So we are writing a new accountability proposal, we need accountability obviously, but this will be based on multiple measures, multiple tests, not just on content knowledge; but on the skills and characteristics that students need to be successful." The ceremony concluded with a presentation from Dr. Jesse Washington, interim superintendent for Orangeburg School District Five.
