The Beaufort County School District has increased the diversity of its academic offerings in recent years, providing traditional schools, magnet programs, schools of choice and, now, the county’s first charter school. But this array of choices is set against a backdrop of a lean economy and the tight budgets that come with it.
The Leadership Beaufort Alumni Association will sponsor a panel discussion of these matters, “County School Choices and Funding: Why Parents Want Choices and How They Are Funded.”
Who: District superintendent Valerie Truesdale, Riverview Charter School parent Stacy Canaday; AMES magnet school parent Anne Hansen, principals and other public officials will attend and participate in the discussion.
What: In addition to the discussion, a question-and-answer period is planned.
Where: Holiday Inn Beaufort, 2225 Boundary Street, Beaufort.
When: Tuesday, May 31. The evening begins at 5:30 p.m. with a cash bar and light hors d’oeuvres. The one-hour program begins at 6 p.m.
Details: The public is invited to this free presentation. Contact Jack Little at Jack.Little@wellsfargo.com.
