Event description

Description

Join us on our annual bus tour where we will visit three schools doing transformational work in the Pee Dee.

Starting early (7:30), we will board the bus at the Florence Country Club and travel to the Early Childhood Center at Woods Road in Florence where we will see transformative work being done in the space of early childhood education. From there we will ride to Sumter. During that time, Nancy Fishman, Director of ReadyNation, will discuss the business case for quality early childhood education and her group work at the national level. Our first stop in Sumter will be at the Sumter Career and Technology Center where Culinary Arts students will prepare and serve lunch. A tour and presentation of their aerospace program will follow lunch. The day will close with a visit to Sumter’s Bates Middle School where participants will engage with students immersed in project-based learning.

The return trip to Florence will include a closing discussion about the day and action steps that participants can take on behalf of efforts to continue transforming South Carolina education. Attendees are encouraged to invest the time in spending the day with the group and take advantage of the unique opportunity for engaging discussion that can only happen during the bus trip. However, there is the option of visiting just one or two schools.

As always, business leaders, community leaders and policymakers will have the opportunity to see innovation in action as we tour each school, hear from and talk with students and teachers and spend time in classrooms.

We look forward to seeing you on Oct. 23!
