The Olde English Consortium 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.
Please see the attached, below studies re: the Uniform Start Date and its impact on Tourism in South Carolina! The OEC has studied the issue and has the below research to share.
Also, the OEC just completed plans for its upcoming October 8, 2013 Professional Development Conferences (see below and click on "professional networking" to the left of this page - for further details).
