Please welcome our New Tech Educator, Zeb Dinkins!!!

My name is Zebulun Dinkins and I am very excited to be assigned as your new technology educator for the 2014-2015 school year!
I hold a B.S. in elementary education and Masters in Education from Claflin University. I also hold certification in the Project Lead the Way Pre-Engineering program and have taught 5th Grade in Greenville County School District. I have also taught middle grade level Lego NXT Robotics, Music Production, and The Gateway to Technology program. I was an Instructional Technology Facilitator for three years at Orangeburg Consolidated School District five before coming to Richland One. I look forward to working with you and your staff.
I would like to setup a time to meet and discuss how the Instructional Technology Services department can best support your school throughout the 2014-2015 school year. If you have any immediate support requests I would happy to assist you with that as well.

Science Pacing 2014-2015

As many of you know, our state has adopted new standards. These will be fully implemented in grades K-2 in 2014-2015. South Carolina will continue to assess the 2005 science standards in 2015; therefore, grades 3-5 will continue to teach the 2005 standards, but will begin to embed the Science & Engineering Practices (SEPs) in their instruction. For all of the 2014 standards, including the SEPs, click on this link:
