The Kershaw County School Board accepted the resignation Nov. 16 of Midway Elementary School Principal Jewell Stanley effective Dec. 31.  Stanley will take a position in the S.C. Department of Education’s (SDE) federal and state accountability office overseeing Title I programs.

In accepting Stanley’s resignation, Kershaw County School District Superintendent Frank Morgan said, “Jewell has worked very hard to move Midway forward. We are sorry to see her leave, but the opportunity at the Department of Education is an excellent match for her skills and experience. I know she will do a great job there.” 

Serving as Midway’s principal for the past eight years, Stanley said she is extremely proud of helping teachers to earn $500,000 in grants.  She credits her staff for the school’s improvements. 

“We’ve worked hard to improve our school report card rating and to achieve Adequate Yearly Progress,” she said.

Stanley served as Midway’s assistant principal for two years prior to being named the school’s principal in 2002. She also taught at Lugoff Elementary School for four years. This will not be her first work with SDE; she has served as one of the agency’s consultants in a program teaching technology to other school and district administrators.

  Morgan said the district will immediately look for an interim principal and will begin a comprehensive search in late winter for a permanent replacement. The search process will include the opportunity for input from all Midway stakeholders, he said.
