January 16--  The Toombs County school board has approved new voting districts for the six members of the board.

At its January meeting, the board approved new voting boundaries to give each district as much population equalization as possible to comply with federal voting laws.

{mosimage}School Superintendent Dr. Kendall Brantley says the most population shifts were made from the Second and Third Districts to boost numbers in the First District.

"No board member was drawn out of his district.  About 95% of all the people who are voting can either vote a board member in or out of office.  The impact is mostly on the fringes of each of the voting districts," Brantley said.

The school board also re-elected board member Russ Benton as the board vice-chairman and voted to keep its meetings in 2012 the same as in the past, the second Thursday of each month.
