CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) -- There was a lot of controversy among Charleston County school board members and the community on Monday. The board has proposed a salary increase, which would make the CCSD board the highest paid school board in the state.

But late tonight, the board voted down that idea.

The measure to add an annual salary of $15,000 a year to a $25 meeting stipend was approved by three board members.

But the others voted it down, saying now is not the time for a raise.

The $25 per meeting pay was approved back in 1983.
