Berkeley County Schools will be closed on Thursday, March 1st.
While the leadership of the state associations of teachers and service personnel called for an end to the work stoppage, this sentiment has not been accepted by employees throughout the state. It will be difficult to bring this work stoppage to an end if all 55 counties are unable to agree on an equitable resolution.
As of this message, we cannot determine the number of teachers or service personnel that will report to work, call off work, or cross a picket line. Therefore, with the safety of students paramount in making our decision, schools will be closed again tomorrow, Thursday, March 1st. We recognize the inconvenience this has created for you and your family.
