Kershaw County School District (KCSD) Superintendent Dr. Frank Morgan expressed skepticism of a recently updated proposal by the S.C. Education Oversight Committee (EOC) to create a "one report card system" for school accountability. Morgan is so skeptical, he has even written a letter to the county's legislative delegation saying the "proposal needs close scrutiny by legislators." It is a proposal, he told the delegation, with "significant flaws."
The Kershaw County Board of School Trustees will hear a presentation during its meeting tonight about a proposed combined accountability/report system developed by the S.C. Education Oversight Committee (EOC). The S.C. General Assembly directed the EOC to develop the proposal under legislation passed during its 2016 session. The EOC adopted the proposal in January and it is supposed to meet federal and state requirements.
