SPRINGFIELD -- The Effingham County Board of Commissioners discussed redistricting for it and the Effingham County Board of Education during a Dec. 7 public hearing at the County Administrative Complex. 

A map proposal based on the 2020 Census was unveiled, giving each of five districts approximately 12,950 residents. 

There were no comments from the public during the hearing. 

The proposed map does not change school attendance zones. It is only to delineate districts for election purposes for the county commission and school board.
