Miller School Board Faces Ouster

The state Board of Education will hold a hearing Tuesday on whether to remove members of the Miller County school board.

The hearing stems from a new state law that allows the governor to remove school board members in districts in danger of losing accreditation. Miller County was put on probation by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools in early November.

The state board voted Nov. 28 to delay a decision on Miller County.

The 1,000-student district in Colquitt near the Alabama line has three schools, all housed in one building.

The state has held similar hearings for districts in Atlanta, Montgomery County and Coffee County, but so far has not recommended ousting board members in those districts.
