About Us

"Those of us who serve on the Fairfield County Education Foundation Board hope you will support our efforts to help attract and retain the very best educators possible for our children. In order for our school district to continue its progress toward providing an excellent education for all of our students, we must make our district, and community, an attractive and welcoming destination for those educators we seek to recruit to teach and live among us.

The growing teacher shortage in South Carolina and the nation requires every school district to strengthen its competitive advantages, as it competes for the very best educators. The proposed "Fairfield Commons", a residential community for educators, will allow our district to be a state and national leader in providing educators with attractive and affordable housing that provides amenities to ensure an unparalleled opportunity to collaborate and learn.

We hope you will learn more about our efforts to help make Fairfield County Schools a desirable place for the very best educators to do their very best work!"
