KCSD to hold portion of budget
Placeholder Image
The Kershaw County School District (KCSD) will lose $497,000 from the 2012-2013 school year budget due to the exclusion of a “hold harmless” provision from the state legislature’s approved budget. Last month, the Kershaw County Board of School Trustees approved a budget based on the S.C. Senate’s proposed state budget, which included a $20 million state-wide hold harmless provision. Hold harmless was created to keep school districts from being negatively impacted by budget cuts influenced by Act 388 and the Index Taxpaying Ability.
