The Chilton County Board of Education streaming of meetings has been discontinued.

The announcement was made on the Chilton County School District Facebook page without explanation on Nov. 9.

In a phone interview, Chilton County Schools Superintendent Jason Griffin said he made the decision because of logistics.

“We will be moving the meetings (to different schools),” Griffin said.

This will start in January.

Griffin said he wanted to change the locations of the meeting and meeting times to make it easier for people to attend the meetings.

“Live streaming is left up to the superintendent’s discretion,” Griffin said.

The time for the meetings has also been changed to 5 p.m.

The next voting session of the board will be on Nov. 27 at 5 p.m. Griffin said the meeting is on the fourth Thursday instead of the third because of a state attorney general’s opinion stating that the new board could not start serving until after Nov. 16.

The new board will be sworn in Nov. 25 at 2 p.m. at Chilton County High School with a reception to follow.
