BEAUFORT – Keeping schools safe and maintaining high academic standards for student athletes will be topics of discussion for the next “Our Schools” television program, which begins airing Friday on the County Channel.

Appearing with Superintendent Jeff Moss in the show’s segment on school safety will be Gregory McCord, the district’s Chief Auxiliary Services Officer; David Grissom, the district’s Protective Services Officer; and Alfredo Givens of the Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office.  Givens coordinates activities of deputies who serve as school resource officers.

Appearing with Moss in the segment on student athletes’ academics will be McCord; Bluffton High School Athletic Director Cody Slaughter; and Richard Jenkins, a three-sport athlete at Bluffton High.  Beaufort County is one of only two South Carolina districts that require students to earn at least a 2.0 GPA (a C average) to participate in athletics.  Nearly all district student athletes in fall and winter sports met that academic requirement.

“Our Schools” is a partnership between the school district and the County Channel.

Beginning Friday, April 6, the new edition of “Our Schools” will air four times weekly: at 11:30 a.m. Mondays, 9 p.m. Tuesdays, 8:30 p.m. Thursdays and 12:30 p.m. Saturdays.  The broadcast will air on local cable networks: Comcast’s Channel 2, Hargray’s channels 9 and 113, and Spectrum Channel 1304.  The show also will air at those times on the County Channel’s website.

In addition, the show will be archived and can be watched any time at the same link.
