As we report on today’s front page, a majority of the Kershaw County Board of School Trustees voted against a motion to provide the North Central area’s three elementary schools -- Baron DeKalb (BDK), Bethune (BES) and Mt. Pisgah (MPES) -- $12.7 million for renovations. This is the same amount which would have been used to consolidate BES and MPES. The vote, which essentially affirmed one taken two weeks ago, will keep BES and MPES open for now and provide all three schools with $1 million each for renovations.
