South Carolina State Superintendent of Education Dr. Mick Zais will be making a couple of stops in the Upstate on Monday.
Dr. Zais will begin his visit by speaking to members of the Simpsonville Chamber of Commerce during a legislative lunch, where he's expected to address the current state of the public school system.
The lunch is taking place from noon to 1 p.m. at Simpsonville City Hall. The event is open to both members and non-members of the chamber for $15.
Dr. Zais will then make his second stop at Palmetto High School in Anderson County where he'll be meeting with administrators to discuss the successes and challenges that currently exist at the school and throughout the school district.
This is the second time this month Dr. Zais has visited Upstate schools. Earlier this month, he met with a handful of Greenville County schools.
His visit to Palmetto High marks the 239th school Zais has visited since taking office.
As State Superintendent of Education, Dr. Mick Zais oversees the operation of more than 1,200 public schools, nearly 59,000 teachers and administrators, 706,000 students and a budget of $3.8 billion.
