School District Of Pickens County Denying Citizens Rights To Be Notified

Several citizens have requested to be on the email notification list of the School District Of Pickens County. John Eby, Communications Specialist for SDPC has specifically denied COTU members and other organizations that they find objectionable while allowing "media outlets" and "agreeable organizations" to be notified.

We have been advised that our regular public posting of our meeting dates, times and locations on the district website fulfills the legal requirements of the statute you referred to.

Sometimes these "news organizations" don't place these notifications in their papers or on their websites. Several have paid access.

Seriously? 

How hard is it to just add someone's name to a list of automated emails?

Both Senators from Pickens County are on the following legislation:


Sponsors: Senators Larry Martin, Thomas Alexander (+ others)

SECTION 30-4-80, CODE OF LAWS OF SOUTH CAROLINA

(E)    All public bodies shall notify persons or organizations, local news media, or such other news media as may request notification of the times, dates, places, and agenda of all public meetings, whether scheduled, rescheduled, or called, and the efforts made to comply with this requirement must be noted in the minutes of the meetings

Approved the 8th day of June, 2015, Nikki Haley
