SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) - Schools in Charleston County have banned Confederate items from clothing, jewelry and cars on campus this year, just a couple of months after the shooting deaths of nine people at a historic black church.

The Herald-Journal of Spartanburg reports (https://bit.ly/1MWJBGS ) that school officials in Spartanburg County are not singling out Confederate items as banned this year.

Spartanburg schools already ban clothing that interferes with the education process, is unsafe or destructive. Officials say there have been no instances of students displaying the confederate flag in the first week of school.

The suspect in the Charleston church shooting has been seen in a number of photographs with the Confederate flag.

The Confederate flag in front of the Statehouse was removed last month.
