Beaufort County School District Referendum 2019
The Beaufort Regional Chamber of Commerce’s Board of Directors voted last week to support the Beaufort County School District’s referendum to improve school safety, renovate facilities, and add needed classrooms.
While the Chamber Board is very aware that any increase in costs to businesses and residents is a burden, the Board recognizes that education is an important part of regional economic prosperity.
Beaufort-area businesses are experiencing shortfalls in qualified applicants for job openings. Business owners and managers realize that the best opportunity to fill these jobs is through a robust K-12 education system supported by local higher education institutions.
The Chamber Board, composed of business leaders, understands the value in an improved education environment and therefore supports the Beaufort County School District Referendum.
