Posted on 10/05/2022

Today, the U.S. Department of Education announced 19 Magnet Schools Assistance Program (MSAP) awards and Georgetown County is among the recipients.

The MSAP awards support efforts to develop and revitalize magnet schools with academically challenging and innovative instructional approaches designed to bring together students from different social, economic, ethnic, and racial backgrounds. GCSD will implement a magnet school program in the five Carvers Bay area schools offering programming in creative and performing arts, STEAM/STREAM learning, early college, and digital immersion.

“We are incredibly excited about this opportunity and what it means for our communities,” said Superintendent Keith Price. “We have already begun our steps for planning and implementation. I would like to thank all of our principals and their staff in our Carvers Bay area schools for their assistance in the application process. And now, the hard work begins.”

GCSD’s grant, awarded over the next five years, totals $14.9 million. The funds will focus on professional development, conferences, instructional resources, supplies, physical modifications to existing learning spaces, and some salaries.
