The Horry County School Board of Education will hold its first meeting of the 2013-2014 school year tonight.

The meeting will be held at 6 p.m. at the District office located at 335 Four Mile Road in Conway.

During the meeting, the board will discuss monitoring reports on governance, facilities, emergency superintendent succession and the comprehensive facility plan.

Monitoring reports are how the school board can keep tabs on all of the district's ongoing projects.

The board will also discuss facility usage fees and learn more about the district's new initiative for personalized digital learning.

Recently, the school board approved a plan to put some type of technology, whether that is an iPad, computer or tablet, into the hands of every students over three years.

The plan will cost more than $12 million the first year including the cost of purchasing the equipment. The plan will roll out this year staring with grades 6, 7 and 8.

Opinion Poll

Should citizens be allowed to video/photograph police activities?

On occasion, police try to prevent the press and the public from taking pictures and video of their activities. Would you support Sen. Gerald Malloy’s bill that would exempt bystanders from prosecution and harassment when filming or photographing police, provided the policeman is in a public place? What do you think?
