SC Local Education Association Hosts ESSA Town Hall Meeting

January 23, 2017

The Orangeburg Consolidated School District 5 Education Association hosted an ESSA town hall meeting that focused on three main areas: 1, reducing class size; 2, reducing state standardized tests; and 3, and providing “wraparound” services for students to meet their social, personal, and mental needs. OCSD5 Education Association Secretary LaKeisha Lawrence said that parents and community members “have a right to know about the law” and “things cannot change if they are not informed.”
