Clover to use junior high to house its students
CLOVER -- The Clover school board voted unanimously Monday to send half the district's middle school students to Clover Junior High next year, postponing plans to use that campus for high school overflow.
The other option was to send the students to the Clover Middle School building next year when a new middle school opens on the eastern side of the district.
Grades will be reconfigured to K-5, 6-8 and 9-12, eliminating the need for both a middle and junior high school.
The district is planning a spring bond vote that would include a new middle school in central Clover by August 2011. At that point, the board may opt to expand the high school campus to include the neighboring junior high building.

Former administrator charged with lewd act
COLUMBIA -- The State Law Enforcement Division says a former school administrator had sexual contact with students more than 30 years ago.
State agents arrested 67-year-old Stephen Eubanks of North Augusta on Tuesday.
Authorities say Eubanks had sex with a 16-year-old girl and attempted to have sex with a 14-year-old male student and gave him alcohol between 1975 and 1977.
Eubanks remains at the Aiken County jail awaiting a bond hearing on several charges. Jail records indicated he did not have an attorney and a message left at his home was not immediately returned.
