Placeholder Image
Standardized test scores released this week by the South Carolina State Department of Education show local students exceed state averages and, in many cases, outperform their Midlands counterparts. Kershaw County School District’s (KCSD) 3rd-8th graders’ Palmetto Assesment of State Standards (PASS) scores were higher than state averages in English language arts (ELA), writing and math in 15 of 18 areas. "I am extremely pleased with these results, which reflect a tremendous amount of hard work on the part of our staff and our students," said KCSD Superintendent Frank Morgan -- "Our results continue to compare more than favorably with districts with more affluent demographics and higher levels of funding."
