"Where Excellence Begins"


  • Richland One Parents Must Complete Annual Returning Student Enrollment Verification


     Parents/guardians of current Richland One students who will be returning to the district in August must complete the annual online Returning Student Enrollment Verification form for the 2020-2021 school year.

     Parents are encouraged to complete the form as soon as possible to ensure that they continue to receive vital district/school messages and alerts, which are especially important during inclement weather and other emergencies that lead to changes in the school schedule.

     The online form, which is accessible through each school’s Parent Portal, gives families a quick and easy way to update their address, phone numbers and emergency contacts. Providing updated contact information also will be helpful in preventing delays in scheduling their children’s classes for next year. Parents are also asked to upload a current proof of address. If parents/guardians cannot upload an electronic file, they should contact their child's school to make other arrangements.

    Parents/guardians without computers or Internet access can use their smartphones or contact their child’s school for assistance. Families who have questions about logging into the Parent Portal or don’t have a Parent Portal account should contact the school where their child is enrolled.

    All Richland One Students Qualify for Pandemic EBT (P-EBT) Benefit


    The S.C. Department of Social Services (DSS) has announced that South Carolina has received approval from the U.S. Department of Agriculture to implement a Pandemic EBT (P-EBT) program, providing a one-time benefit to help supplement family food costs resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic and prolonged school closures.

     As many as 467,000 K-12 students in South Carolina who qualify for free or reduced-price meals are expected to receive this benefit. All Richland One students, regardless of their household income, qualify for the P-EBT program because Richland One is a Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) district.

     Food purchasing with the P-EBT benefit is subject to the same restrictions as EBT cards issued for SNAP recipients and cards may be used at any store that accepts SNAP. Recipients will have one fully year to use the benefit before it expires and receipt of P-EBT does not preclude participation in summer feeding programs or other community-based food programs for children and families.

  • Your encouraging words for kids can help them thrive in school and life! How do your words matter? 

    Positive words from parents, teachers, and mentors are a rich source of internal motivation and guidance to children and teens. Often, kids recall your words of encouragement for years to come.

    Encouraging Words Vs. Praise

    1. Be Honest. Children are the first to recognize when your words are not sincere. ...
    2. Focus on Effort, Not Ability. ...
    3. Be Specific. ...
    4. Avoid the Need to Compare. ...                                                                      
    5. Don't Over-Encourage.
    6. Don't Use Encouragement to Control

    LEAP Success Chart:  A Classroom Behavior System


    “Leaping to Success!”


    Here at Mill Creek, our students are challenged each year to LEAP toward success.  This system will allow students to gain positive and negative consequences for their choices and behaviors.  Classroom behaviors will be monitored with a color chart, in which students will move personal clothes pins when making exceptionally good choices (move up) or when needing redirection from the teacher (move down).  Every student begins each day on green.  The value of each color is described below:









    Outstanding Day


    Student exceeds expectation and demonstrates all LEAP traits.

    (small incentive- daily or weekly).

    Good Day


    Student represented at least 3 LEAP traits (small incentive- daily or weekly).


    Ready to Learn


    Normal expectation; no behavior problems (verbal praise)

    Think About It


    Warning (Verbal or written)


    Parent Contact


    Parents are contacted and this communication is documented in the Parent teacher Communication Log Book. (A discipline referral might also be completed)


    The LEAP Success Chart system is designed to teach students to make positive choices and redirect negative behaviors.  Parents will be notified daily of student behaviors through classroom notes, agenda books, behavior folders, etc.  Please discuss with your child daily the LEAP expectations for student behaviors.  We believe all students can raise their LEAP to success every day!
