Here at Clarendon Three
It is our vision to see every student graduate with the knowledge and skills to be successful in their endeavors, whether that is post-secondary education or entering the workforce. Our schools strive to provide high quality education for all students, focusing on academics and student learning in order to prepare them to succeed in an ever changing world.

Clarendon School District Three (Turbeville) and Clarendon School District One (Summerton), for immediate release –

Clarendon School Districts Three and One issue this joint press release to provide our communities with important information concerning potential legislative action that may impact our students, employees, and their families. As you may be aware, our state legislature is considering many important educational issues during this current session, including consolidation.

Senate Bill 203 is being debated this week in the Senate. As it is written, it would require that Tier IV county school districts with less than 1,500 students consolidate with another district in the same county. Also, it sets deadlines for impacted school districts to create consolidation plans for approval by the State Department of Education. Both of our Districts meet these criteria.

Fortunately, as Bill 203 is currently drafted, it provides much needed financial support for districts who take action and submit plans for consolidation to the State Department of Education by August 1, 2020. As we understand it, if Bill 203 passes, approximately $35 million dollars will be set aside, collectively, for those school districts required to consolidate as long their consolidation plans are submitted by the August 1, 2020 deadline. School districts that miss this deadline will not be eligible for this critical funding. To that end, this creates a tremendous financial incentive for these impacted school districts to work together to draft a consolidation plan no later than August 2020. However, Bill 203 does not require that these school districts, including Clarendon Three and One, consolidate by August of 2020. Rather, if this new legislation passes and becomes the law, our Districts will be required to consolidate after August 1, 2022, with no financial assistance from the state.

As you know, the preservation of our unique and individual communities of both Turbeville and Summerton is important to our Districts and local Boards of Trustees. In that regard, we must balance the needs of our individual Districts with the possibility that consolidation will be required. In anticipation of this, our Districts will begin discussing how we can share administrative services; it is the desire of both Districts to share services in such a way that does not impact the location of our schools or the number of our teaching positions.

In the event that Bill 203 becomes law, our Districts’ administrative teams, along with our School Boards, are prepared to work together to support one another and draft a consolidation plan by August 1, 2020, to take full advantage of the state funding provided for that purpose. It will be important that we collaborate and listen to one another during this process to ensure success for all of our constituents and our communities. As this legislation moves forward, we will keep the public informed and provide opportunities for you to engage with us during this process. We are committed to putting our students and communities first and will do all that we can to ensure that any transitions required by the law are carried out in the best interests of our children, employees, and their families.
