Serving America’s Heroes and Their Families

Sumter is proud to be the home of Shaw Air Force Base and US Army Central, which are integral parts of our community. As a school district, we welcome and value the men and women who serve in the armed forces and their family members. Together, we look for ways to foster our relationships as we work in collaboration to ease the burden of a transition to a new school district.
– Dr. Penelope Martin-Knox, Superintendent
