GIFTED AND TALENTED PROGRAM UPDATE
On Tuesday, May 30th, a group of concerned parents came to the district office requesting information about the future of the Gifted and Talented program at OCSD5. One of the questions asked by the parents concerned a rumor that the Gifted and Talented program within the district was being eliminated. For the record, there are no plans to eliminate the Gifted and Talented program at OCSD5. This was plainly stated by Mary Ulmer, Chair of the OCSD5 Board of Trustees, within a news article that appeared in the May 31st edition of the Times and Democrat. In the article, Ulmer stated, “We have no plans of getting rid of the Gifted and Talented program in Orangeburg Consolidated School District Five.” This message was repeated again on the record in an official statement from the district to the Times and Democrat on Wednesday, May 31st. The Gifted and Talented program will continue to be offered in the upcoming school year.

OCTV Launches New Website, Viewing Options Expanded and Enhanced
Orangeburg Consolidated School District Five (OCSD5) and the County of Orangeburg have partnered to create a new website that brings our local cable television signal and our library of video programming to anyone with an Internet connection. The address for the new Orangeburg County Television (OCTV) website is: www.orangeburgcountytv.com (click on image above). Until now, access to the OCTV signal was limited to local subscribers of the Time Warner Cable (TWC) system. While the television signal can still be viewed on TWC Channel 12 or Channel 78.10 for viewers with a QAM-enabled television, the new website makes OCTV available to everyone. Visitors to the website have the ability to view the live signal that is being broadcast on OCTV or select from any of the items in the video library for “on-demand” viewing. Check the website frequently as new video content is being added every week.
