  PowerSchool Parent Portal Changes 
Aiken County Public Schools has implemented the Parent Single Sign-on for PowerSchool. Parents will need to create a new account for the Parent Portal that will allow them to link all of their children under one sign-on account.  Click here for instructions.   Click here for important student information.
The bus accident on Beech Island Avenue and Scarborough Drive in Beech Island was transporting Aiken County students.  A preschool student from Greendale was fatally injured.

Other injuries include another student from Greendale as well as the bus driver. Both have been transported to area hospitals.

State Testing Update for Spring 2015
Aspire (3rd-8th)- April 28-May 1
SC PASS (4th-8th) - May 7 & 8
     This past summer the S. C. Legislature changed the state testing program. A new test called Aspire will be given in grades 3 through 8 to test reading, writing, English, math, and science. Students in grades 4-8 will continue to take the SC PASS tests for science and social studies. The Aspire tests will be given on April 28 through May 1, and the two SC PASS tests will be administered on May 7 and 8, 2015. 
     The biggest change that our students will notice is that each Aspire subtest has a time limit. Students will be tested for approximately one hour per day, and the writing test must be completed in 30 minutes.  Some students may not finish before they must stop working and turn in their tests.  Our students are more familiar with the SC PASS tests, which have no specific time limits. Teachers are currently providing practice for students so that they will become more comfortable with the timed tests. The two different science tests will allow us to assess our students’ knowledge of the South Carolina science standards while still being able to compare our students’ achievement with their peers nationally. 


SchoolFusion Parent Account
A SchoolFusion Parent Account allows parents to view all of their children’s classroom information in one web location. Parents can check assignments, view important deadlines on FusionPage calendars, follow their children's sports calendars, school events and much more!  Once parents have created an account email notifications will be sent when new announcements and assignments are added.  Only parents/guardians of students enrolled in Aiken County Public School District are allowed to register.
SchoolFusion Parent Guide
