The Kershaw County Board of School Trustees will continue discussing its priorities for the 2015-16 school year during its meeting Tuesday night. At its last meeting, Feb. 3, the board focused on employee compensation as its top priority for the next school year’s budget.

Tuesday, trustees will focus on facilities. Voters rejected two referenda in November 2014 which would have levied a penny sales tax to pay for $130 million worth of bonds the district wanted to use for various projects across the county. Now, trustees need to decide what, if any of those projects, should rise to the top and how to pay for them.

In other business, the board will hear a report on graduation rates, graduation plans and participation in advanced placement/dual enrollment classes; and a report on changes in the state testing program.

Tuesday’s meeting will begin at 6 p.m. at the Kershaw County School District offices, 2029 West DeKalb St. in Camden, and is open to the public.
