Capital Parents and Guardians:
Beginning with the 2018-19 school year, Columbia High School will be designated as a Title One School. Title I is a federal program that provides opportunities for the children served to acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to meet challenging state content standards.
Resources are distributed to schools where needs are the greatest, in amounts sufficient to make a difference in the improvement of instruction.
We want your input. Please review the Parent Engagement Policy and the School-Parent Compact and send any feedback that you may have by Thursday, May 24th. We will continue to provide updates on our Title Programming.
We thank you for your commitment to our students and our school.
We Just Can’t Hide That Capital Pride!

On behalf of our Superintendent, Dr. Craig Witherspoon, it is with great pleasure that the administration and staff of Richland School District One join in the excitement you must feel about our upcoming graduation exercises.
Our experience has been that the high school graduation is one of our students’ most memorable events. We make every effort to provide ceremonies that promote a truly dignified graduation for our students. Please take the time to review these guidelines with your graduate and guests before your arrival on next Tuesday, June 4, 2019 at noon at the Colonial Life Arena.
· The graduation ceremony will begin promptly at noon on June 4th. All guests should plan to arrive at the Colonial Life Arena at least one hour (1.0) before the scheduled ceremony start time. Doors will be locked once the graduation ceremony has begun.
· Shuttle service will be available for all graduates and attendees as needed.
· The clear bag policy is strictly enforced. This includes diaper bags, purses, bookbags, etc. Neither Richland School District One, law enforcement nor Colonial Life Arena assumes responsibility or liability for prohibited, confiscated, or lost items. Metal Detectors will be used upon entry.
· Inappropriate decorum, such as noise-making or use of noise-making devices which detract from the audience’s ability to see and hear, is unacceptable. Diplomas of offenders may be withheld on the day of graduation if inappropriate behavior is exhibited by any graduate. Law enforcement officers will be stationed throughout the Colonial Life Arena to escort disruptive audience members out of the Arena.
· All males are required to wear dress pants, button down shirt with a tie under their graduation regalia.
· All ladies are required to wear dress and/or pant suit under their graduation regalia.
· All students are required to wear dress shoes. No flip flops or sneakers may be worn by females or males.
We are looking forward to a dignified graduation ceremony which honors our young people and which appropriately celebrates their achievements. Thank you for your help in achieving this goal.
Dear Parent or Guardian:
Richland School District One is partnering with The COMET, (Central Midlands Transit) to allow high schools students to ride The COMET in its service area at no charge to the student. Because this free ridership opportunity is being made available at this time, the District is requesting that the student and parent/guardian notify the school of the intent to ride the COMET. In order for students to participate, students will have to present their ID when boarding a bus. Students’ school ID numbers must be provided to The COMET in order to create student rider passes.
Students may not leave school early or arrive late without appropriate parental permission, including but not limited to written and\or electronic communication. The Student Code of Conduct and all school board policies apply to students while riding the Comet. Appropriate disciplinary measures may apply to students who violate Richland One rules while riding Comet.
