Pickens County School Board News

H 3346, a bill that would add one member to the Pickens County School Board, was passed by the SC House. Rep. Gary Clary and Rep. Neal Collins co-sponsored this bill.

The 7th member will be appointed at first and replaced by an elected at-large member in the 2018 general election. Eventually, there will be seven single-member districts.

The League of Women Voters supports adding at-large representation to the Pickens County School Board. Our rationale is expressed in a Letter to the Editor .
