The Savannah-Chatham County Public School System held its oath of office ceremony on Wednesday. Six incumbents and two newly elected board members, Jennifer Lambeth and Larry Lower, were sworn in. Lower says he would like to see more parental involvement and more options for students.
"I think our programs are directed more for college bound students and I think we need to drop back a little bit and try to get those who are not going. We understand less than 50 percent of our students go to college. What are we giving those other 50 percent?" said Lower, District 6.
The board members attended mandatory training following the ceremony.
