The initial goal of SCORS will be determined by the membership at its first organizational meeting. The following are some suggestions for goals. 

  • Inform the legislature, administration, and other groups or agencies at the state level of the concerns, needs and conditions in the rural schools in South Carolina. 
  • Suggest legislation that would help to create a more equitable funding system in the state of South Carolina.
  • Accumulate membership of all the rural school districts in the state of South Carolina.
  • Develop the base through research and compilation of existing data sources. 
  • Provide data and information for rural schools that can be used to make useful decisions. 
  • Solicit support from membership for the goals of SCORS. 
  • Communicate by electronic and other means frequently. 
  • Understand that the goals of SCORS may change from time to time to reflect the current needs of our students in rural schools.
