Legacy Early College Overview

Academic Programs

Family Involvement

At Legacy Early College we believe that the more our scholars see their family members involved at school, the more school becomes important to them.  Thus it is our mission to have our school serve our families, not just our scholars.  Please look for further information sent home throughout the year, found in your child’s folder or communicated by telephone, Legacy’s Facebook page, and email/text about how you can be more involved with our school.

Policies and Procedures

Attendance Policy

In South Carolina, All children are required to attend a public or private school or kindergarten beginning at age five (5) and continuing until their 17th birthday. If a child is not six years of age on or before the first day of September in a particular school year, parents/guardians may choose not to send their children to kindergarten; however, they must sign a waiver which may be obtained at the local school.

In accordance with the South Carolina Compulsory School Attendance Law, Legacy Early College follows similar expectations as the School District of Greenville County for adopted uniform rules to ensure that scholars attend school regularly. Each day that scholars are not in school, they miss hours of valuable instruction and opportunities for learning that they will not have again. Scholars are counted present only when they are actually in school, on homebound instruction, or are present at an activity authorized by the school principal. A scholar is considered in attendance when present for at least three (3) hours of a school day.

Any scholar who misses school must present a written excuse, signed by his or her parent or legal guardian or a healthcare professional when the scholar returns to school. The written excuse should include the reason for and the date of the absence. If a scholar fails to bring a valid written excuse to school, his or her absence will be recorded as unlawful. Extenuating circumstances will be handled with school administration. Legacy reserves the right to accept an excuse, if needed.

Technology, Internet and Social Media Policy

Legacy Early College provides scholars with technological devices with the sole purpose of providing additional educational tools to help move the scholar forward.  These devices are tools, not toys.  Any scholar who is found to be using these devices inappropriately may lose the privilege of using that device for the remainder of the school year.  In addition, the inappropriate use of these devices could incur additional consequences according to the school’s Discipline Policy/Standards for School Behavior.
