The Kershaw County Board of School Trustees will hear a report during its meeting tonight on “Indicator 13,” a legally required measurement of how well school districts prepare students 16 years of age and older with special needs to achieve their potential after high school. The board, which ordinarily meets on the first and third Tuesdays of each month, voted recently to merge its December meetings into one starting tonight at 6 p.m. in the district’s board room on West DeKalb Street in Camden. According to a presentation attached to tonight’s agenda, Indicator 13 is legally defined as the “percent of youth with IEPs (Individualized Education Program) that includes appropriate measurable postsecondary goals and annual goals related to the student’s transition service needs.
