STAR CENTER FOR LEARNING

'BUILDING FUTURES' Through 'STAR' Studded Student Performances! 

The STAR Center for Learning is located in Cope, South Carolina, in the central region of the state.  Cope is 44.2 miles south of the capitol city of Columbia, 88.8 miles west of Charleston, and approximately 222 miles east of Atlanta.  Cope is located along SC state highway 332 and .5 miles from US Highway 301 South. 

We serve students from the communities of Branchville, Neeses, Springfield, Cordova, and Southern Orangeburg who attend schools within Orangeburg Consolidated School District Four and Bamberg School District One and Two.  The STAR Center serves more than one hundred students per year. The district built a state of the art alternative school to serve both the middle and high school students.  STAR (Students Taking Alternative Routes) was opened in 2002 for occupancy.  The school contains five classrooms, one computer lab, one science lab, a distance learning lab, a conference room, several offices, and a cafeteria.

Students can attend the STAR Center for Learning by way of three programs:

*Middle Grades Matter (MGM)
*Jump Start to High School
*Disciplinary Placement

Middle Grades Matter (MGM)

The MGM program provides intensive academic interventions for middle school students who are overage for grade level.  Students are recommended by their principals and must be

interviewed for admission.  Classroom grades, MAP test scores, and behaviors are some indicators that will be used to monitor academic progress and placement for students returning to their home schools. 

Jump Start to High School (JSHS)

JSHS is an alternative educational setting that allows eighth grade students who are too old for their present grade to receive high school credits toward graduation.  Students in this program must have a desire to jump start their high school education and must have minimal discipline problems. 

Disciplinary Placement

Students are placed at the STAR Center for Learning by the Assistant Superintendent for Operations and Planning or the District Hearing Panel as a result of disciplinary problems. Students will remain at the STAR Center for a minimum of twenty (20) days and must successfully complete the point system before being considered to return to his or her home school.  All students will be placed at the STAR Center for Learning for the nine-week period.  Any student placed mid-quarter and have completed twenty (20) days will be considered qualified to return to his or her home school.)  Intake interviews are held each Monday and Thursday mornings at 9:00 am.  Thursday morning intakes begin classes the following Monday.  Students must bring their books from their home schools. Students placed at STAR for disciplinary reasons may not drive to school.  Students must ride the bus or have parents/guardians bring them to school and pick them up.  All students attending STAR are furnished bus transportation.
