 Policy Update

In accordance with School Board Policy KIB, the Cherokee County School District, (CCSD) does not allow students and staff to be subjected to and/or utilized as marketing and advertising conduits. However, the CCSD realizes that there are community activities and events that may be of interest to parents seeking resources for their children.

In lieu of hard-copy flyer distributions to publicize these events, the CCSD offers a Virtual Community Bulletin Board on its Web site for posting such notices so that they are accessible to staff, parents and students, as wanted/needed.
