The Kershaw County Board of School Trustees will vote tonight on whether to approve having the Kershaw County School District (KCSD) convey a 6.6-acre tract of land next to the Jackson Teen Center on York Street for additional recreational development.

The property is situated to the east of the teen center, across from Camden High School and across Gordon Street from the new Tennis Center of Camden.

Trustees first heard about the potential transfer during its Jan. 30 finance/facilities committee meeting. At that time, the board asked that an assessment be conducted concerning the value of timber on the wooded lot. According to information attached to tonight’s agenda, the timber is valued at $7,000. No mention was made of a full sale price, or -- as with other land transfers in recent years between the district and city -- if a property swap would take place.

Also on tonight’s agenda:

• Trustees will consider approving revisions to the district’s policy on naming facilities proposed at a previous board meeting.

• Trustees will consider a guaranteed maximum price for additions and renovations to Lugoff-Elgin and Leslie M. Stover middle schools.

• The board will hold a discussion on a board self-evaluation process, led by Vice Chair Shirley Halley.

• KCSD Superintendent Dr. Frank Morgan will discuss the upcoming “The Wall That Heals” exhibit coming to Historic Camden Revolutionary War Site and propose a possible change to the board’s second meeting in March.

• Trustees will enter executive session to discuss undisclosed employment matters, a student discipline appeal, a contractual proposal for the new superintendent search, and to receive legal advice on as yet undisclosed topic.

The agenda indicated the board may take action on the superintendent search contract proposal after returning to open session.

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