Prayer topic at next Jasper Co. School Board meeting

Posted: Updated:
JASPER CO., SC (WTOC) -

The Jasper County Board of Education is holding a meeting Monday night where they plan to discuss prayer before meetings.

The school board voted 4-4 last week to stop conducting a prayer before their board meeting. The chairman of the board had to break the tie - resulting in the end of prayer.

Now, board members have a moment of silence before the meeting - where they can do what they want.

A Monday night, a lawyer is being brought in to give some history on how long prayer has been done in the meetings. No vote will be made on prayer at Monday night's meeting. The public meeting takes place at 6:30 at the Jasper County Board of Education building.
