Delegation plans to discuss school board structure

EASLEY — Members of the Pickens County Legislative Delegation will meet today (Sept. 18) to review the structure of the School District of Pickens County’s board of trustees.

Legislators are expected to discuss whether to add an at-large seat or a seventh single-member district to the board.

Local legislation eliminated at-large districts from the board in 2007, although the seats existed until October 2010.

Concerns have arisen recently that the Easley area, the largest attendance area in the district, is underrepresented on the school board.

The Legislative Delegation consists of Senators Thomas C. Alexander and Larry A. Martin, Representatives David R. Hiott, Phillip Owens, Joshua Putnam, and B. R. Skelton.
