Legislation Proposed By Oconee County School Board Would Produce Two Changes But Allow Only One Yes Or No Vote On December Ballot

***Would Overturn Election Of Board Chair***

The Oconee County Board of Education on Monday night released on its web site and via social media the full text of the law it wants passed to change how the chair of the Board of Education is selected.

If the bill passes and becomes law, the ballot item for the November election would ask voters if they want the Board to appoint its own chair, rather than have voters do that, as is the case at present.
