MOUNT PLEASANT, S. C. (WCIV) -- The calendar may show that there are only three weeks left in the school year but, that hardly means that teachers and students are slowing down in the classroom.

Students in Charleston County have been working diligently to stay on task as day 180 of the school year approaches.

During the 2011-2012 school year, a district-wide focus on literacy was set forth by school superintendent, Dr. Nancy McGinley.

She is expected to share data next month that will reveal the progress that has been made over the past several months.

"Students and teachers are excited about the end of the school year approaching," associate superintendent Terri Nichols said. "They are finishing up their state standards at every grade level. Everyone's on track to complete all of that."

The hard work is expected to continue during the summer break as all of the schools in the district will be sending home summer work packets and reading lists.

"Research has said that summer reading is just crucial to keeping students on target for graduation from high school," Nichols said.

While summer school will not be offered in Charleston County, there will be a reading program geared towards children kindergarten through third grade.

Parents of students in those grades should have already received information regarding the program.

For additional information on programs offered this summer, please contact the school district at 843-937-6300.
