A Message from the Superintendent

Communication. The time is right to put together a blog for our Spartanburg Two District family: employees, parents, community and students. The purpose will be to provide some background and insight into decisions, programs, and philosophy surrounding circumstances that are impacting what we do in providing an outstanding education for the students of Boiling Springs and Chesnee. You are invited to check in periodically to see what the superintendent is thinking. You are also encouraged to contact me with your questions and suggestions; email is generally the best avenue. My email address is scott.mercer@spartanburg2.k12.sc.us.
