he Cherokee County Board of Education voted unanimously Wednesday to conduct the hearing to determine if Marlow violated the board’s code of ethics by sending a complaint letter to AdvancED and Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, the agency in charge of school accreditation.
Marlow must be given at least 30 days to prepare for the hearing.
School District spokesperson Barbara Jacoby said Friday if the date for the hearing is chosen before the next school board meeting, which is Aug. 15, it will be announced then, but said there is no estimate as to when the hearing will be because it depends “on scheduling the parties.”
Jacoby said School Board Attorney Tom Roach will hire a hearing officer and a court reporter for Marlow’s hearing, and said they will be chosen “as soon as possible.”
According to school board policy, the hearing will be open to the public and Marlow is allowed to bring her own legal representation
For the Aug. 15 meeting, a work session will begin at 6 p.m. and the meeting will start at 7 p.m. Both are open to the public will be at the historic Canton High School Board Auditorium, unless the location is changed prior to the meeting to accommodate a larger crowd.
