Safety In The Workplace

This past week, I learned that workplace accidents in the District were down around 60% over the same period a year ago.  Why is this imporant?  The lower the claims experience, the lower the cost of worker’s compensation insurance.  Money that isn’t spent on worker’s compensation can be spent on areas that will have impact on our students.  It’s that simple.  Four years ago, Kershaw County had one of the highest employee accident rates in the state.  Now it has one of the lowest.  This didn’t just happen.  It is the result of focus by everyone.  Great job!!!!

I got to catch our own Greta McAvoy and Mary Anne Byrd on “Out and About in Kershaw County” on Truvista Channel 39.  They did an excellent piece on the Parent Portal in Powerschool and did a fanastic job!  Thanks to Kirk Mays of KM Productions for making this happen.  The piece runs on Channel 39 throughout November daily at 7:00 a.m., 8:00 a.m., noon, and 7:00 p.m.  Two new stars are born!!!
