KCSD kudos

The four year graduation rate rose from 91.3 percent to 92.2 percent; it jumps to 94.4 percent with the inclusion of students who graduate in five years.

FOIA

Occasionally, readers might see us admonishing a public official or public body about an issue that we believe falls under the purview of the S.C. Freedom of Information Act. They may even wonder why the reporter or the newspaper is "making a big deal" out of what may seem like a small detail.
