HORRY COUNTY, S.C. (WPDE) — A topic that was well-debated over the past year is now being debated again.

The plexiglass barriers that were put in Horry County Schools (HCS) cost the South Carolina Dept. of Education (SCDE) $5 million in CARES Act funds to buy and install. The coronavirus relief funds were to be used towards the safe reopening of schools.

The article goes on to state the following:

In a scheduled meeting on Monday, Superintendent Dr. Rick Maxey announced that those barriers will be removed from all of the schools in the district this summer. He said by fall there will be no plexiglass barriers in schools across Horry County School District (HCSD).

Lori Ard, a mother of two children in the school district, said the plexiglass should have never been installed.

“I am disappointed to see that the school system used $5 million for what 3 months? 4 months worth of usage. That’s a lot of money that could have definitely been used elsewhere. That money could’ve been utilized to place air purification systems in the school and to keep the environment clean and keep the air purified for our students and now we have $5 million worth of plexiglass that’s probably just going to sit in some storage building somewhere,” Ard stated.

In an interview on Fox News Thursday morning, another Horry County mother, Sara Dozier, who has four children in the school district, said the $5 million spent on the plexiglass was a huge waste of money.
