South Carolina State Superintendent of Education Molly Spearman will address hundreds of Rock Hill School District educators as the new school year approaches.

Superintendent Spearman’s visit to Rock Hill will cap the district’s professional learning conference where teachers and administrators collaborate to improve student achievement. The conference is an effort by the Rock Hill Schools Instruction and Accountability Department. Superintendent Spearman is expected to speak at Castle Heights Middle School (2382 Fire Tower Road, Rock Hill, SC 29730) Thursday, July 21, at 3 p.m.

Superintendent Spearman’s priorities are ensuring school safety and a system of instruction that will prepare every graduate for successful life after high school. She believes the foundation for that instruction is effective classroom teachers and principals who facilitate personalized learning for every student, every day.
