CHARLESTON COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - A new era at Burns Elementary is about to begin and the Charleston County School District is holding an open house for the community.
The community event on Tuesday, July 19 is billed as an evening of "Food, Fun and Facts." It will include a meal, activities for kids and a Q&A session with the Burns team and new principal, Dr. Joyce Johnson.
In April, the school board voted to move forward with a partnership with Meeting Street Schools. The partnership allows the organization to run the school with the district. Meeting Street Schools began a partnership with CCSD in 2014 to run Brentwood Elementary and improve the school's test scores.
The open house will be Tuesday, July 19 from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. at Burns Elementary on Dorchester Road in North Charleston.
