Group claims improper KCSD hiring practices
Placeholder Image
A letter from an anonymous group charges the Kershaw County School District (KCSD) with violating proper hiring practices. The group sent the letter -- addressed to Kershaw County Board of School Trustees Chairman Joey Dorton -- anonymously to board members, school principals and news outlets out of “fear of retaliation” from district office administrators. In the letter, the group alleges a district office official said the decision to hire one Caucasian and two African-American principals to fill vacant positions at Jackson, Leslie M. Stover Middle and Midway Elementary schools was planned before an official interview process began.
