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.

Thank You!September 8, 2017

       We would like to extend our thanks to you for following the Superintendent’s Blog. We hope it has been a useful resource for information about our District.

         However, there are now more convenient and more frequently updated ways to get news about us!

        Therefore, this will be the final post on the blog. We encourage you to follow us on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube for the most current news about Spartanburg Two. Our websites are also a place where you can find information about our schools.

Eclipse 2017August 22, 2017

    On Monday, August 21, our area experienced a near-total solar eclipse. Monday was also a staff development day across the District.  

    The previous Friday, students were given ISO certified viewing glasses so they could safely watch the eclipse from home.  Teachers also exposed students to fun and educational activities about the eclipse.

      We live-streamed the eclipse on our Facebook page so that those without viewing glasses or who were stuck indoors could watch the historic event.  So far, more than 22,000 people have seen the eclipse on our Facebook page. Click here to watch.

SLA Students Learn Life-Saving SkillsJuly 13, 2017

Today, the more than 200 elementary students enrolled in our District’s Summer Learning Academy (SLA) learned CPR, as well as other potentially life-saving lessons, as part of an action packed Community Day.

The event is a partnership supporting education by highlighting the organizations that support our community through goods and services. This day also helps to build relationships and trust between public officials and our future leaders. The following community partners visited SLA to share their expertise.

Spartanburg Regional Health Care provided CPR training for all of our students.

             SLA Director Ashley Roberts says students gained information that will benefit their lives and impact their future.

             “We are grateful for the time and expertise our community members shared with our Summer Learning Academy students,” Roberts said. “The positive impact of this experience will last far beyond our summer program!”

Hats off to the Class of 2017July 10, 2017

Congratulations to Spartanburg Two’s class of 2017, your hard work really paid off.  This year’s graduates earned a combined $26.2 million in college scholarships. That is a new record for our District, eclipsing last year’s total by over $200,000. 

Congratulations also go out to the parents, teachers, coaches and administrators that supported these students throughout their school careers.
