Placeholder Image
The Kershaw County School District has received an additional $300,000 grant on top of the $5.7 million Safe Schools/Health Students (SS/HS) grant the county received a year ago to combat the influence of gangs. The SS/HS grant has impacted local youth through summer programs at local churches and will help fund after-school programs, the addition of mental health counselors, digital school bus security cameras, intervention programs and anti-violence and anti-drug curriculums. The additional $300,000 grant is specifically targeted for mentoring at-risk students in fifth through eighth grades.
