Dr. Hembree's Message for the New School Year

Dear McCormick School District Families,

We are excited to open our school doors on Thursday, July 21st  and embrace the 2022-2023 school year! 

Our vision and goals for the school year will continue to be centered around building ‘World Class Chiefs”.  I firmly believe that we are preparing our students for jobs that may not yet exist, and we have to be ready for this, McCormick Chiefs!  We are positioned and equipped to increase student achievement, while developing the necessary leadership skills within our students to prepare them to meet the Profile of the South Carolina Graduate.  We are so proud to offer robust learning experiences to personalize learning for each and every student, and you will hear more about these in the coming weeks.  

As we approach the 2022-2023 school year, please know that the McCormick County School District Board of Trustees, administrators, teachers, support staff and I are committed to providing a world class educational experience for our students.  We are positive that you will find a dedicated team who is committed to helping your child experience success academically, athletically, and artistically.  

We are going to make it an exceptional 2022-2023 school year!  Words cannot express my gratitude and appreciation to our students, families, employees, Board of Trustees and community partners, for your continued support of our wonderful district.  

As we move forward on this journey of excellence together, please do not hesitate to let us know how we can be of service to each and every one of you.  



Dr. Jaime L. Hembree

Superintendent of Schools
