A Legacy of Pride and Excitement about the Future

{title}
As you look through this site, you will see many reasons for our pride and excitement about what the future holds. District Seven celebrated another year of tremendous accomplishment as a result of the caliber of our students in the area of arts, activities, athletics, and academics.
First and foremost, the successful first year of Seven Ignites the bold, comprehensive 1:1 technology initiative which has positioned us for future growth and innovation. This past fall, the District was named one of 11 new members accepted into the League of Innovative Schools, by Digital Promise, a national, independent nonprofit organization authorized by Congress to accelerate innovation in education. As the only district from South Carolina tapped for membership, the District was selected from a competitive and national pool of applicants based on its leadership, evidence of results, innovative vision for learning, and commitment to collaboration. The League now includes 57 districts and education agencies that collectively represent more than 3 million students across 27 states. This tremendous honor certainly underscores our goal to be a model School District in the Southeast and the most innovative school district in South Carolina.
