NOTE: Once connected select Report Cards and then Advanced Search – You may now review the Report Card for individual schools including but limited to such criteria as: 1) annualized dollars spent on each student or 2) # of teachers returning from the previous year.
A state education panel has created a database on the Internet it hopes will allow people to better evaluate South Carolina's public schools.
The Education Oversight Committee's new online database allows viewers to search for schools based on several criteria, including performance ratings, number of students and poverty levels. It also includes searches for percentage of teachers with advanced degrees, teacher retention rates and per-pupil spending.

What is South Carolina Palmetto Assessment of State Standards (SCPASS)?
As mandated in Chapter 18, Title 59 of the 1976 Code, the Education Accountability Act was amended (May 2008) to provide for the development of a new statewide assessment program. This program, known as the South Carolina Palmetto Assessment of State Standards (SCPASS), was first administered in the spring of 2009. It is administered to South Carolina public school students, including charter school students in grades three through eight.
What is the purpose of the SCPASS tests?
Palmetto Assessment of State Standards test items measure student performance on the South Carolina Academic Standards. Palmetto Assessment of State Standards test results are used for school, district, and federal (No Child Left Behind) accountability purposes.
When are the SCPASS tests administered?
The writing test is administered over two days in March, and the remainder of the PASS tests are administered in May. Specific test dates for spring 2014 are provided in the South Carolina Palmetto Assessment of State Standards (SCPASS) Spring 2014 Testing Schedule.
Test dates for 2014-15 have also been posted to the Assessment Web page. Resource: www.ed.sc.gov
