We are encouraging the Discus community to give us feedback on the Discus databases and resources. What resources do you love?  What do you use often?  Complete the 2017 Discus Content Survey. Teachers, media specialists, students, parents, library patrons, business people, and all South Carolina citizens are invited to respond. For questions about the survey, contact the Discus Office.

Discus Kit Feedback

Earlier this year the Discus Office sent out Discus Promotional Kits to all of the Discus participating school in South Carolina. We are starting the process again and would love to hear what media specialists and teachers think about the items they received. Please send any suggestions for future kit items or feedback about current items to the Discus Office.
