The Atlanta Journal-Constitution - - COUNTY BY COUNTY - DAVID IBATA FOR THE AJC

The Chero­kee County School Board has set a pub­lic hear­ing to gather com­ments on 2018-19 at­ten­dance ar­eas as it seeks so­lu­tions to over­crowd­ing at Chero­kee High School.

The meet­ing is to start at 6 p.m. Nov. 16, in the school board au­di­to­rium, 1205 Bluffs Park­way, Can­ton. A sign-up sheet for speaker slots will be in the lobby. The board will hear from as many as 15 speak­ers. Each will be al­lot­ted up to three min­utes. Board mem­bers will lis­ten and take notes but will not re­spond.

“We sug­gest that any groups work­ing to­gether to ad­vo­cate for a spe­cific so­lu­tion des­ig­nate a spokesper­son to speak on the group’s be­half; the en­tire group is wel­come to stand be­hind the spokesper­son at the podium,” the district said in a state­ment. “We also sug­gest speak­ers bring a copy of their re­marks to give to (district) staff, so the re­marks can be copied and shared with the board for fur­ther re­view.”

The board is ex­pected to vote on a so­lu­tion at its Dec. 14 meet­ing. Prior meet­ings with res­i­dents pro­duced four pos­si­ble so­lu­tions, posted here: http://bit.ly/2ypJpeX
