KCSD responds to Title IX allegations
Placeholder Image
Three months ago, Lugoff-Elgin High School (L-EHS) parents Mike and Marti Gogan sent an email to Kershaw County School District (KCSD) Superintendent Dr. Frank Morgan, expressing concern that the school district was in violation of Title IX federal funding regulations. Alleging that “vastly different” resources, equipment, and benefits were provided to the high school’s male versus female athletes, the Gogans asked Morgan to investigate what they felt were “wrongdoings” in the L-EHS athletic department. In a letter mailed Thursday to the Gogans, Morgan said he conducted a system-wide review of their complaints and does not agree with the assertion that there is a “blatant disregard for Title IX” at L-EHS. Regarding their concerns about misuse of funds, Morgan also added that the Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office independently looked into the issue and found no misconduct.
