Curriculum & Instruction

Spartanburg School District Six Instructional Services


The Instructional Services Department oversees the curriculum and instruction programs delivered across the schools in Spartanburg School District. We strive to ensure that students are offered the best educational experience possible in our continuing mission to Always Put Children First.


The Instructional Services envision an educational experience for all children where they master grade-level standards, discover and develop their inner talents, learn in a safe and caring environment, and are equipped to lead fulfilling lives within the global community. Student success is promoted through a comprehensive program that regards the needs of the whole child and sets them on a pathway for College and Career Readiness.

Welcome to the 2020-21 School Year! 
We are working to ensure our students receive the very best educational experiences despite the many challenges we have faced with COVID-19.  Students have begun school under a Hybrid A/B model, attending school face to face two days a week with at-home learning taking place the remainder of the week.  The D6 Virtual Academy has also been made available to students and parents who prefer to have learning take place at home through virtual means.  
District Six looks forward to students returning to a full five day schedule as soon as safety levels allow.  Teachers and administrators prepare for the return to a normal school schedule but are working to provide students with the most optimal educational opportunities in the hybrid and virtual models.


Teachers at Fairforest Middle, Gable Middle, Dawkins Middle, and Dorman Freshman Campus have worked to successfully integrate instructional design principles, methods, media, and computing with their students as they embrace their new Chromebooks. The focus for teachers is to use a learner-centered approach that focuses on how to design solid technology-enhanced instruction that increases learning.

For the 2020-21 school year, students at Dorman HIgh School will also have Chromebooks.  This will fulfill the district's vision of providing students with personal devices to engage students in their own learning both in and out of school.  Students and teachers continue to receive training on how to use the Chromebooks and how to manage teaching and learning through Google Classroom. The district is truly embarking on new experiences to better prepare students for their learning and their future!
