District Announcements
New Website Coming June 8th

Dorchester School District Two is proud to announce the launch of our new website platform. On June 8th, 2015 we will transition from our current School Fusion platform to Edline.  In order to make the transition successful for all of our users, we are encouraging parents, students and staff to save any personal files currently stored on School Fusion to an alternate location.  As of June 8th, you will no longer be able to access websites or files on School Fusion. Please see the attached document for instructions on saving personal files.

Thanks to community feedback, we have organized our new websites to allow for ease of navigation in order to effectively communicate with the Dorchester School District Two community.  Parents will have the ability to quickly access up-to-date information on what is happening in the district and their child’s school.  We will keep you informed regarding web site features and the progress of the transition.

Together in Education - Harris Teeter


AMS has joined Harris Teeter's Together in Education program.  When VIC members shop buy Harris Teeter Brand items and use their VIC card, AMS will receive 2% of the purchase.  

Here's how:
1. The first time - tell the cashier during check-out to link your VIC card to AMS by giving them the number 2770.  
2. Next time - simply use your VIC card and you'll be connected.
 

History in the Making


AMS Scored an EXCELLENT rating on the SC Dept. of Education's Annual Report Card.  We are so proud of our students, faculty, and staff for accomplishing this academic goal!  In fact AMS was recognized for its growth and academic accomplishments as compared to both local and state-wide schools.  We are all hoping for a repeat performance!  

Thank you to all the parents, business partners, and community members for your support.  It truly takes a whole school/community effort to accomplish a rating of Excellent.  We all have a lot of reasons to be proud.
