Richland Two Charter High School's board of trustees met Feb. 15 and voted to close the school.

The school will continue to provide services to students through the remainder of the 2020-2021 school year. The final day for students will be Jun. 11 and the school will cease operations Jun. 30.

A review of finances indicated the school would not be able to provide services at the level to which students and staff were accustomed. This resulted in the vote to close the school.

Non-graduating students will be transferred back to their zoned schools for the upcoming 2021-2022 school year.

Richland Two is following school closure procedures as outlined in section four of the Richland Two Charter School handbook. Charter School interim principal, Allen Upchurch emailed parents Feb. 19 to share news of the board’s decision. Parents also received a phone call and text.

Families and staff will have the opportunity to ask questions and learn about support at a virtual parent meeting Thursday at 6 p.m.

Families are encouraged to discuss the closure with students. Further questions should be directed to Allen H. Upchurch at (803) 419-1348, ext. 21507 or aupchurc@richland2.org.

Richland Two Charter High School was founded in 2010 for students looking for a modern approach to their high school learning experience. Students at the Charter School complete work through a digital learning management system, meet daily with core teachers in English, math and science, and follow a morning or afternoon attendance schedule to meet their individual needs.
