With one month to go before a mock eLearning Day, the Kershaw County School District (KCSD) is ramping up preparations to test its ability to connect teachers and students at times when extreme weather or other conditions make being at school impossible. In August, the S.C. Education Oversight Committee chose Kershaw County as one of five districts to participate in a statewide eLearning pilot program. At the time, KCSD Superintendent Dr. Shane Robbins said the platform students will use will allow them to continue, largely uninterrupted, with school work on classes on such days.
