Public participation, reports before Sumter school board on Monday


New Sumter School District Superintendent William Wright Jr. will have his second board meeting on Monday, and public participation and reports highlight the agenda.

A district staff member posted the agenda online on Friday for the district's Board of Trustees' regularly scheduled monthly meeting on Monday at 6 p.m. to be held at Oakland Primary School near Shaw Air Force Base.

Like all regularly scheduled board meetings on the second Monday of the month, public participation basically leads off the agenda.

Any member of the public wanting to make a comment to the board on any topic must arrive before the 6 p.m. start time - as early as 5:30 p.m. - and complete a form to speak.

Various reports, including the superintendent's report and finance department reports, will be before the full board.

For those not physically attending Monday, the district broadcasts meetings live on YouTube.

Anyone wanting to attend the meeting virtually can do so via YouTube Sumter School District Board Meeting and the district's Facebook page, @SumterSCSchools.
