Task Force evaluating Lambs and Hunley Park Elementary schools

By Christopher Gerry Joint Base Charleston School Liaison officer

The Charleston County School District has assembled a task force to evaluate the future of Lambs and Hunley Park Elementary Schools.  The team includes principals, teachers, parents and community partners for both schools. Dr. James Winbush, associate superintendent, will facilitate the process. 

The Task Force's mission is to "evaluate the current configuration of Hunley Park and Lambs to determine the best educational opportunities for our scholars."

Lambs and Hunley Park are currently CD-5 schools and military families residing on the Air Base have a choice to enroll their children at either school.  Winbush has made it clear that neither school will be closed.

Three community meetings are planned. The first will focus on getting parent input in front of the team. Since this could potentially change the structure of our elementary schools, it is important to bring your voice to the conversation for the benefit of our children. 

Meetings are scheduled from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m:

Oct. 14 at Hunley Park Elementary School
Nov. 6 at Lambs Elementary School
Nov. 19 at Hunley Park Elementary School

If you are unable to attend, you may submit questions or comments to the school principal, parent representatives, or the School Liaison Officer at 963-4438 or email christopher.gerry@us.af.mil.
