After reviewing survey feedback and considering stakeholder suggestions shared during the District’s February Community Input Meetings, an alternative recommendation to address school facility and program needs of the county will be presented at community forums later this month.
“When stakeholders speak, we listen,” Superintendent Dr. Shawn Foster commented. “A solution we hadn’t considered was shared by stakeholders at some of our meetings. We took a good hard look at what was being recommended and the solution they shared is also workable. We look forward to sharing this alternative.
The revised recommendation will be shared with community stakeholders at Edisto High School on Tuesday, April 26; Lake Marion High School Wednesday, April 27; and Orangeburg-Wilkinson High School Thursday, April 28. All meetings will begin at 6:30 p.m.
April’s meetings are expected to be the final sessions on the proposed facility upgrades ahead of a vote from the School Board as they consider a Bond Referendum on the General Election Ballot in November 2022, that would address the extensive school facility improvement needs without cost to taxpayers.
