Today at the SC State House: Fixing a failing school district

Today S.C. legislators will ask how best to handle a school district in danger of failing.

A bill setting out how the state can monitor “fiscal practices and budgetary conditions” in an S.C. school district will be taken up by the Senate’s K-12 education subcommittee

H.3221 would also direct the education department to take “corrective action” if a district’s money problems risk getting out of hand, up to and including taking over “emergency management” of the district.
