School board gets first look at new budget
Kershaw County School District (KCSD) Superintendent Dr. Frank Morgan provided the Kershaw County Board of School Trustees on March 27 its first look at a proposed 2018-19 budget that would go into effect on July 1. Morgan broke his presentation into three sections: a balanced $87.5 million budget, representing a 3.7 percent increase from the current budget; an unbalanced budget with $510,000 of additional teaching and teaching assistant positions; and, finally, a list of unmet needs. The balanced and unbalanced budgets both reflect a projected enrollment of 10,620 students, 75 more students than currently enrolled.
