The S.C. Department of Transportation’s plan sheet of a proposed walking trail circumnavigating the North Central High School campus from the near the intersection of Lockhart Road and Keys Lane, along Keys Lane to the school’s athletic fields and then wrapping around the school property to return to Lockhart Road near the middle right of the plan.

As part of his ongoing series of updates on referenda-approved construction projects, Kershaw County School District (KCSD) Director of Operations Billy Smith will ask the Kershaw County Board of School Trustees at its meeting tonight to approve an S.C. Department of Transportation (SCDOT)-funded walking trail at North Central High School (NCHS).

According to a SCDOT plan sheet, the trail would begin near the southern end of the NCHS property at Lockhart Road and move south a short distance before turning east along Keys Lane. A pedestrian ramp and/or crosswalk would be built to allow walkers from North Central Middle School to safely join the NCHS trail, which would continue east along Keys Lane until reaching the rear of the NCHS property. There, it would turn northward again, tracing a route all the way behind the NCHS baseball field and school buildings. It would then turn west back to Lockhart Road where it would turn south for a short distance before ending at one of the school’s driveways.

In addition, Smith will also ask trustees to approve a guaranteed maximum price, referred to as a GMP, for roof work at Lugoff-Elgin High School (L-EHS).

In other business tonight, the board will recognize L-EHS baseball coach Randy Stokes; NCHS for receiving another Bronze Award from U.S. News & World Report; and the Applied Technology Education Campus as State CTE Student Organization winners.

Also, the board will further discuss and take action on policy revisions concerning school wellness, academic honor graduates and class rank, and the community use of school facilities; further discuss the Fiscal Year 2018 budget; hear reports from Board Chair Ron Blackmon and KCSD Superintendent Dr. Frank Morgan; and enter executive session to discuss language for a proposed contractual arrangement.

The board may vote on that language following the executive session.

Tonight’s meeting will begin at 6 p.m. in the KCSD board room, 2029 West DeKalb St., Camden, and is open to the public.
