School board focuses on alt. ed. plan

The Kershaw County School District (KCSD) is working to change the way it approaches K-12 alternative education. In a continuous effort to increase graduation rates and help students succeed in life, district administrators and community members have come together to create an Alternative Education Plan to target students who do not learn well in the “typical” classroom setting. A 19-member committee worked with KCSD Executive Director for K-12 Instructional Support Programs Dr. Alisa Goodman to create a five-year plan that will give students who learn outside of the mold an opportunity to get an education and learn practical skills based on data showing about one-third of KCSD students are “struggling academically or behaviorally.”
