The Kershaw County Board of School Trustees will meet tonight beginning at 6 p.m. in the Kershaw County School District (KCSD) office’s board room, 2029 West DeKalb St. in Camden. The meeting is open to the public.

Tonight’s agenda includes recognition of Chairman James Smith and Vice Chair Shirley Halley’s completion of another round of board/leadership training by the S.C. School Boards Association (SCSBA). Halley has reached what the SCSBA considers Level 4 training; Smith, Level 3. Level 6 is the highest level of training that can be achieved through the SCSBA.

Also tonight:

• The board will hear a proposal to enter into a contract with the SCSBA to assist with reviewing and revising the board’s policy manual. According to documents attached to tonight’s proposed agenda, If the board authorizes the contract, the SCSBA would prepare and deliver the first sections of the draft policy manual to the district within three months and then deliver remaining sections approximately every three months within a year of the first. The policy manual is split into 11 sections, labeled A through L (there is no section H). Unless otherwise directed by the board, the SCSBA will prepare the draft manual in four groupings: sections A and B; sections C-F; section G; section I; section J; and sections K and L together. The total estimated cost of the project is $11,250.

• Halley will deliver a report on the SCSBA’s recent School Law Conference.

• KCSD Director of Operations will update the board on referenda-related construction projects.

• Newly hired KCSD eLearning Director Isti Sanga will present information about the district’s effort to provide digital instruction to students at home on what would otherwise be weather days.

• Trustees will enter executive session to discuss undisclosed employment matters and at least one legal matter concerning possible litigation.
