The Pee Dee Education Center was formed in 1967 to provide services to its member school districts.  Current membership includes Chesterfield County Schools; Clarendon Districts 1, 2, & 3; Darlington County Schools; Dillon Districts 3 & 4; Florence Districts 1, 2, 3, 4, & 5; Lee County Schools; Marion County Schools; Marlboro County Schools;  Williamsburg County Schools; Coker College, and Francis Marion University.

The Center provides such programs as Project SHARE which serves low incidence disabled students in the host sites of Darlington County Schools and Florence School District One. 

The Center  promotes hiring of minority teacher candidates by sponsoring several loans each year to worthy minority students who are going to college and major in Education.  Upon graduation, if the student returns to the Pee Dee region to teach, the loan is paid by the school district.

High School and Middle School Academic Challenges are sponsored by the Center as well as the regional Spelling Bee, The Junior Scholars' Recognition Program,  and the FMU Math Tournament.

The Center also provides PowerSchool Training for member districts.
