School board going paperless

On the same day that the Escambia County School Board gained two new members, they found out they will be losing their paperwork.

More specifically, the board of education plans to use iPads for their agendas and other paperwork. Assistant Superintendent John Knott said Thursday at the board’s regular meeting that training will be offered for board members on how to use the iPad and the apps needed for the agendas.

Also Thursday, new board members Coleman Wallace of Atmore and Mike Edwards of Brewton were sworn in as new board members. Both were elected earlier this month and replace Chuck Brooks and Donnie Crutchfield, respectively. Danny Benjamin ran unopposed and was re-elected. He was also sworn in Thursday.
