The San Miguel School Board, which meets Thursday night at Lillian Larsen School, will hear a presentation from Beth Kean of the California Nurses Association and Lee Perkins of ProtectSLO, representing a North County group in opposition to the proposed transportation of oil through San Luis Obispo County by train.
The proposed mile-long trains would transport 2.4 million gallons of oil through the county five times a week.
The board will then consider Resolution 2015-16-03 Opposing Oil Trains and Rejecting Phillips 66 Proposed Oil Train.
Open session begins at 6:30 p.m., and meetings are open to the public.

Correction: An earlier version of this story incorrectly stated the number of oil trains that would travel through San Luis Obispo County under a proposal by the Phillips 66 refinery. The proposal calls for one train per day — or five trains per week.
