Mar 12, 2019 10:37AM ● By Kathleen Maris
At the February 19, 2019 regular monthly meeting of the Lexington County School District One Board of Trustees, the board passed a resolution expressing their support of the efforts of the district’s teachers to increase the South Carolina average teacher salary to a nationally competitive level that encourages those with experience to stay in the classroom and makes teaching an appealing career option for college students and career changers.

In the resolution, they pointed out that the success of more than 26,800 students in Lexington County School District One depends on the skills, knowledge, positive influence, and leadership of dedicated teachers who work collaboratively with school board members, administrators, colleagues, parents, families, community members, and others to prepare students to live, work, and succeed.

The board’s resolution appears on the district’s website.
