The Laurens County Board of Education continues to work on selecting a new Superintendent of Schools. Planning for the search began in June. The Board asked King-Cooper and Associates, a superintendent search firm, to serve as consultants for the search. The position was advertised with an application deadline of August 18, 2017, and information about the search has been available on the school system website. The Board also conducted an online survey that was completed by almost 600 community members and school district staff.
