Who and What is,
'Keep Our Schools Strong?'

Keep our Schools Strong 2018 is a group of citizens intending to educate the Fort Mill Community on the needs and impact of the referendum up for vote on March 20, 2018.

We are private citizens who, like many others in the community, are concerned about the growth in Fort Mill and its impact on our schools.

We are not formally affiliated with any other organization and have raised funds to support our efforts from local individuals and businesses who value public education in Fort Mill.

We are not privy to any information that is not available to the public. We have attended board meetings, board committee meetings, and met with district officials to learn extensively about the background of the bond referendum.

District employees are prohibited by state law from publicly advocating for the referendum, but as concerned and involved citizens, we are not.

We are committed to be transparent and open about the positives and negatives of the referendum, and we strongly believe voting yes on March 20 is in the best interest of our school district, taxpayers, and, most importantly, students.
