Vision Statement

The Cherokee County School System strives to provide all students with multiple quality educational opportunities designed to prepare them for success in an ever-changing society.

Technology

The Cherokee County School System is using technology to improve educational opportunities for students in the district. The system has a 1:1 student to device ratio and provides students access to a variety of technologies to aide instruction and increase student engagement. These tools allow teachers to implement more individualized instruction, promote project based learning, and encourage students to work at their own pace. Online courses provided through ACCESS, Virtual School Program, and Career Quest, an alternative education program, provide additional learning opportunities for Cherokee County students.
