For The Press and Standard

At the special board meeting June 1, 2023, the Colleton County School Board accepted the resignation of Dr. Vallerie Cave as Superintendent of Colleton County schools.

Prior to the Thursday night meeting Cave was placed on administrative leave. During this time the school board “investigated information” that was brought to their attention on May 18. At this time, the information brought to the board has not been released.

Some attendees spoke on behalf of Dr. Cave urging the board members for her reinstatement. A petition was also circulated in favor of reinstatement with hundreds of signatures from people in the community.

Assistant Superintendent Jessica Williams will continue in her role as interim Superintendent.
