OCSD Invites Stakeholders to School Facilities Study Meetings & Encourages Input on Path Forward

Orangeburg County School District Administration and its Board of Trustees have received comprehensive results following studies conducted on the state of our District’s school facilities, as well as information related to current enrollment and projected future enrollment numbers. Community stakeholders are invited to a series of public input meetings being held November 15-18 at high schools throughout the county to review the information and make suggestions on next steps for ensuring high quality learning environments for the students and families OCSD serves. 

Join Superintendent Dr. Shawn Foster and Assistant Superintendent for Operations Bob Grant for an interactive presentation and open discussion at a location most convenient to you. Four community-wide meetings will be held next week, each beginning at 5:30 p.m. Stakeholders are encouraged to join in person at the location most convenient to them, or virtually through the link on our district webpage. 

Monday, November 15: Bethune Bowman Middle-High School

Tuesday, November 16: Edisto High School

Wednesday, November 17: Lake Marion High School

Thursday, November 18: Orangeburg-Wilkinson High School

“Community-wide input is imperative to ensure that, together, we make the best possible decisions for the future of our district as it relates to our school facilities,” Superintendent Dr. Shawn Foster commented. 

District Administration plans to share comprehensive feedback with the Board at their December 14, 2021, meeting, along with recommendations for a path forward to ensure our school system is maximizing its resources to the fullest benefit of the students and families we serve.
