The results of a superintendent search survey and a review of district and school strategic plans are on the agenda for tonight’s Kershaw County Board of School Trustees meeting. The board normally meets on the first and third Tuesdays of each month. Earlier this year, the board voted on a meeting calendar that included moving April’s meetings to the second and fourth Tuesdays of the month, primarily to deal with budgetary matters.

The district recently conducted a survey of the public seeking input on what characteristics and skills a new superintendent should have as it seeks to replace current Kershaw County School District Superintendent Dr. Frank Morgan. Morgan announced in January that he would be retiring effective June 30.

In reviewing the district’s and individual schools’ renewal plans, the board will be following a requirement by State Board of Education regulation and state law to annually review these plans. According to tonight’s agenda, the plans “serve as an accountability system and include a comprehensive needs assessment, goals, action plans, and plans for evaluation.”

Other items on tonight’s agenda include:

• a construction update on referenda approved and funded projects;

• continued discussion of the proposed Fiscal Year 2019 budget;

• a report on the board’s joint ad hoc committee with Kershaw County Council on growth and school resource officers;

• a legislation update from Morgan; and

• an executive session to discuss “employment matters.”

Today’s meeting starts at 6 p.m. in the board room at district headquarters, 2029 West DeKalb St., in Camden, and is open to the public.
