Camden, SC: More SPED students every year

Mar 23, 2017, Camden (SC) Chronicle Independent: Student growth funding crisis coming, says KCSD The problem goes deeper than sheer numbers, according to Morgan. As he said during a previous meeting, new students coming in to the district appear to have more needs than new students during previous years. “We’d have more kids that need second-language services; we’ve almost doubled that in the last six, seven years. We’ve got 190 more with special needs since 2014-2015, 37 more kids since 2010 that have identified on the autism scale, 50 more health-impaired students who require nurses or occupational therapy or physical therapy, 50 more preschool students with developmental delays … and that means we’re getting into K and 1, 2, and still be experiencing issues.
