TransformSC was launched in 2013 as a collaboration of business leaders, educators, students, parents, and policy makers transforming the public education system so that every student graduates prepared for careers, college, and citizenship. During its initial phase, TransformSC partnered with 73 Schools from 29 districts, as well as 7 entire districts, that implemented innovative practices that reached every student, classroom, and teacher. These TransformSC Schools laid the groundwork for the work of TransformSC.
