Richland School District Two uses dollars wisely

While the Kershaw County School District persistently attempts to squeeze every last dime they can muster from families who struggle to pay their bills, our neighbors in Richland County are getting tax breaks from their local school district. 

I am writing to publicly commend the actions of Richland School District Two that lead to the request for a reduction in the debt service millage charged to taxpayers.

This public-minded action sets multiple examples that state and local government should follow. First, it shows that school districts can lead the way in demonstrating superb financial management. Additionally, it shows that high-quality schools do not require a bottomless fountain of funding. This reduction demonstrates the School District’s respect for recession-stressed citizens.

I am proud of the action by Richland School District Two. They have set a high precedent for other Districts around our cash-strapped state and they have earned public acknowledgement.
