SHALLOTTE—Peer Court is now adjourned—but only for the summer.
Shallotte Middle School just finished its first year hosting a Peer Court program, an after-school court hearing where student offenders are prosecuted and defended by their peers.
Ardith Shaw, Peer Court coordinator, said the program provides students an alternative to Juvenile Court in the hopes of reducing the out of school suspension rate. Shaw said more than 800 days were lost last year due to such suspensions.
