The Kershaw County School Board of Trustees will meet Tuesday evening at 6 p.m. in the Board Room at the district’s main office, 2029 West DeKalb St. in Camden.

On the agenda is a proclamation of thanks to State Rep. Laurie Slade Funderburk and Kershaw County’s legislative delegation for their assistance in obtaining a donation of $5,000 to the Applied Technology Education Campus (ATEC) from AT&T. The money will be used to buy supplies for ATEC’s biomedical program.

Kershaw County School District (KCSD) Director of Communications Mary Anne Byrd and Webmaster/Multimedia Coordinator Julie Putnam will present an electronic communication report.

Dr. Alisa Goodman, the district’s executive director for K-12 instructional support systems, will give a report on a partnership with the University of South Carolina called “The USC Project to Learn About Youth.” According to a PowerPoint presentation attached to Tuesday’s agenda available through the district’s website, the project’s purpose is to “look at students’ learning, well-being and general health, and to determine how many students may have emotional or behavioral health concerns.”

KCSD Superintendent Dr. Frank Morgan will also report on the opening of the new school year and how the first days of school are proceeding throughout the district.

Tuesday’s meeting is open to the public.
