South Carolina Public Charter School District Recognizes PSA

March 29, 2017


Dear Families, Stakeholders, and Community Members:


It is with great pleasure that the South Carolina Public Charter School District (SCPCSD) staff recognizes Palmetto Scholars Academy as an SCPCSD School of Distinction based on its data from the 2015-2016 academic school year. PSA has received this distinction for its exemplary work in the category of “100% Academic Performance Ranking” on the annual School Performance Framework (SPF), the District’s primary accountability tool.


The SCPCSD School of Distinction Program was formed to recognize schools that exhibit excellence in overall academic achievement and/or overall student growth measures. The SCPCSD staff is eager to congratulate PSA on this notable accolade and asks that you please join us in celebrating these deserving students, educators, and school leaders who have made this possible.
