Several members are expected to take the stand Tuesday in the third day of a state administrative hearing on whether they should be removed from office. During 20 hours of testimony over two days last week, witnesses detailed alleged unethical and illegal behavior by board members.
The hearing was requested by Gov. Sonny Perdue last month after a group of Clayton County residents petitioned him to unseat board members for alleged violations of state laws. The residents say that the boards actions put the districts accreditation with the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools in jeopardy.
The district is expected to find out from SACS next week if its made enough progress to keep accreditation
