Get Involved with Education
Greenville County constituents who would like to voice their concerns regarding education in South Carolina will be able to a public hearing on Thursday, March 28, 2019 from 6-8:00 PM at the Wade Hampton High School Auditorium.
The intention of this meeting is to listen to the concerns of Greenville County constituents regarding the SC Career Opportunity and Access for all Act (Education Reform Bill). Speakers will sign up to speak between 5:15 p.m. and 5:45 p.m. Each person will be allowed 3 minutes to speak. In order to allow us to hear from as many people as possible, there will not be a discussion time between each speaker or a question and answer period.
The hearing will go until the last speaker has spoken or until 8:00 p.m., whichever comes first. Individuals who are not able to attend the meeting may submit written remarks to the Legislative Delegation prior to the hearing. Remarks can be emailed to LegislativeDelegation@greenvillecounty.org.
