Part of preparing for the new school year, to begin Aug. 20, is figuring out security and safety issues at the Kershaw County School District’s (KCSD) new and existing schools. To that end, new KCSD Superintendent Dr. Shane Robbins attended a recent county-wide work session involving school, first responder, government and other officials focused on school safety and security. According to KCSD Director of Operations Billy Smith, who also mentioned the meeting in a separate report to the board, work session attendees included three state fire marshals and a representative from the Office of School Facilities, which signs off on new and renovated schools for occupancy.
