School Board Seeks Community Support Dealing with Probation

The Savannah-Chatham County Board of Education is talking about that status of Chatham County schools. School board president Hugh Golson and fellow board members formerly announced their concerns over the school system being on probation.

They want the public to know they understand the magnitude of the situation. So they're asking for help from the community, the chamber of commerce and other business leaders to help them clear their name.

"We know their knowledge and oversight will move us in the direction of solving this unfortunate problem," said Golson.

The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools--or SACS--put all Chatham County schools on probation after investigators found at least three school board members illegally interfering with school operations.
