Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Olney District Curriculum
The district curriculum promotes critical thinking, critical reading, and analytical writing skills and also encourages science literacy and problem solving skills to prepare students for the competitive work force they will face after graduation. Students are exposed complex, challenging texts in differing formats. Students come up with questions based on their reading and research and gather evidence to support these ideas in well-reasoned, strong essays that demonstrate intelligence and thoughtfulness.
Richland County High School has a number of career-oriented electives that give students the chance to learn about a career area they are interested in and what it’s like to participate in it after high school. They also offer their students many extracurricular opportunities including sports, arts, music, and clubs. Students are encouraged to become involved in community service, because students who become engaged in their school and with their peers are more likely to be engaged and active in their community after graduation.

Chalk Talk: Early Decision Applications
Early Decision applications (ED) are early, binding applications. The deadline is usually November 1, but this can vary from college to college. That means that all materials must be submitted by that time, including standardized testing. They are binding, which means that students commit to attending this college if accepted, before they’ve even received an acceptance. This can be beneficial for students. Colleges tend to favor early applicants, and acceptance rates are much higher among them. A borderline students might have a better chance at applying ED. The drawback is that another college might offer a better financial aid package, for example, but the student won’t be able to accept it. The student can petition for financial aid review, but there’s no guarantee anything will come of it.
