When Ren and his mother move from Chicago to a small farming town, Ren is prepared for the inevitable adjustment period at his new high school. What he isn't prepared for are the rigorous local edicts, including a ban on dancing instituted by the local preacher, determined to exercise the control over the town's youth that he cannot command in his own home. When the reverend's rebellious daughter sets her sights on Ren, her roughneck boyfriend tries to sabotage Ren's reputation, with many of the locals eager to believe the worst about the new kid. The heartfelt story that emerges is of a father longing for the son he lost and of a young man aching for the father who walked out on him. To the rockin' rhythm of its Oscar and Tony-nominated top 40 score (the soundtrack album reached number one on the Billboard charts and has sold over 15 million copies!) and augmented with dynamic new songs for the stage musical, FOOTLOOSE celebrates the wisdom of listening to young people, guiding them with a warm heart and an open mind.
2016 Digital Learning Grant Winner
South Central Community School Corporation (SCCSC) is pleased to announce the award of a $75,000 grant from the Office of eLearning at the Indiana Department of Education. SCCSC was one of 21 recipients for the highly competitive 2016 Digital Learning Grant. The IDOE expressed that this application displayed evidence of strong leadership, a focused vision for digital learning, and a sound plan for implementation.
Beginning with the 2016-2017 school year, each student will be issued a district supplied device as part of Kindergarten through Twelfth grade 1:1 initiative. Sparked by a successful 1:1 two year pilot in fifth and sixth grade, the district is hoping to empower all students in developing and constructing knowledge for college, careers, and beyond, supported by a digital device. Professional development and staff preparation will be a critical component to help South Central attain our goals. To assist the outstanding administrators and teachers in moving to this new delivery model, the grant provides funding that will allow the staff to participate in professional development sessions during the summer of 2016 and throughout the 2016-2017 school year.
