Opinion regarding the status and constitutionality of Section 3 of Act No. 748 of 1978 and, more particularly, whether the provision that “the superintendent shall be appointed for a term of three years” can be interpreted to apply only to the initial appointment of a superintendent, or is it to be interpreted as requiring the Board to appoint the superintendent for a three year term not only initially but always and only for a three year term.

Requested by: The Honorable Warren J. Jeffords, Chairman, Darlington County Board of Education
