AN ACT TO AUTHORIZE THE CHARLESTON COUNTY SCHOOL DISTRICT TO CHARGE MATRICULATION AND OTHER INCIDENTAL FEES; AND TO AMEND ACT 340 OF 1967, AS AMENDED, RELATING TO THE CHARLESTON COUNTY SCHOOL DISTRICT, SO AS TO REVISE THE MANNER IN WHICH CERTAIN VACANCIES ARE FILLED.
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:
Matriculation and incidental fees authorized
SECTION 1. The trustees of the Charleston County School District are authorized to charge matriculation and other incidental fees pursuant to the provisions of item (8) of Section 59-19-90 of the 1976 Code. The Charleston County School District shall provide for exemptions from these fees based on student or family financial circumstances.
Procedure for filling certain vacancies revised
SECTION 2. Paragraph 2 of Section 2 of Act 340 of 1967 is amended to read:
"Upon the expiration of the term of each member, each successor shall be a qualified elector of the same area and must be elected in the general election preceding such expiration date by the qualified electors of the entire county for a term of four years and until a successor is elected and qualifies. In the event of a vacancy on the board, due to cause other than expiration of term, the vacancy shall be filled by appointment by the Governor upon the recommendation of a majority of the Charleston County Legislative Delegation. Notwithstanding any appointment by the Governor, an election must be held at the time of the next ensuing general election to elect a member when the appointee has been appointed to an unexpired term which exceeds two years. Nothing in this paragraph shall be construed to alter the staggering of terms established by this section."
SECTION 3. This act takes effect upon approval by the Governor.
