  • Blended Learning - Summer 2018

    Dorchester School District Two is pleased to announce the return of our Computer Applications Blended Learning program.

    Please note: The SC State Board of Education regulation 43-234 eliminates Keyboarding as an option for fulfilling the one-half of the computer science requirement for graduation beginning the 2018-19 school year.  Because of this, Dorchester District Two will no longer offer Keyboarding for high school computer science credit via Blended Learning.  Students will be able to take alternate courses to satisfy the high school computer science requirement via Blended Learning beginning fall 2018.

    Blended Learning Registration:

    Monday, May 14th - Monday, May 28th
