Ron Blackmon, a member of the Kershaw County Board of School Trustees, wants to know why discussions on recreation programs and school consolidations never seem to include Midway Elementary School (MES). Blackmon asked the question during the board’s meeting Tuesday night, during which Kershaw County School District (KCSD) officials and the board discussed matters concerning Phase 2 of the district’s facilities equalization plan (FEP) After discussing some other topics, Trustee Kim DuRant brought up the proposed consolidation of rural schools, especially in the North Central area. “The biggest amount of money is to replace the three elementary schools,” DuRant said in terms of proposed FEP Phase 2 funding.
