The Olde English Consortium (OEC) is a 501-C-3, non-profit, educational collaborative seeking to promote excellence in education through collaboration. Founded in 1976 as CYLUC-W, the consortium serves the North Central region of South Carolina, one of the most diverse collaborative in the southeast United States. The name Olde English refers to the early settlement by the English in the mid 1700's and to the numerous Revolutionary War battles fought there. A goal of the Olde English Consortium - or OEC - is to bring all stakeholders together to improve education, economic development, and the quality of life in the region and throughout the state. The OEC desires to maximize the efficiency of federal, state, & local tax dollars by pooling local resources to increase efficiency & collaborative buying power and resources. 

One of the best examples of our "power of collaboration" is held each Fall... recently on Monday, October 9th!!! Six Professional Development Conferences... in 6 cities throughout the OEC region... all on the same day! During this past year, educators from nine school districts - in the following areas  - have conducted a needs-assessment of their peers; secured presenters on "best practice" topics; and hosted conferences for the following "singelton-areas:"

  • ESOL Educators (held at the Fort Mill District Office)
  • Fine Arts Teachers (held at Chester Park Elementary)
  • Library/Media Specialists (held at Fairfield Middle)
  • PE Teachers (held at Northwestern HS)
  • World Language Teachers (Held at Chesterfield HS)
  • Guidance Counselors (Held at Clover Middle)
  • (Note: We have moved our Assistant Principals Conference to Feb. 5, 2018)

On October 9th... our OEC educators were treated to some FANTASTIC professional development conferences... designed BY Educators, FOR Educators. Big thanks to the planning committees and all who participated in a great day! 

Also... on Nov. 30th, the OEC will be hosting a Teacher Recruitment Fair (details below):
