The Cherokee County School Board has renewed a partnership agreement with the county Board of Commissioners on issues ranging from sharing road condition information during inclement weather to county internships for students.

The agreement calls on the school district and county to work together on planning parks, libraries and other county facilities and future school sites; and to continue cooperation between the schools and Cherokee Recreation and Parks Agency on using each other’s facilities for recreational programs.

The district and county would work together on the zoning process so that developers are routinely expected to mitigate the financial impact of their projects on the schools and the county.

The county would provide fire education materials and instruction to kindergartners and fourth graders; the “Ghost Out” teen driver safety/demonstration program; career day speakers from various departments including the Sheriff’s Office and Fire Department; and information to youths interested in participating in the Fire Department’s Explorer program.
