New Redistricting Option To Be Released

Pitt County Schools is currently working through another round of student reassignment, or redistricting. Such work has been controversial in Pitt County over the past several years.

When the Pitt County Board of Education meets Monday, Superintendent Dr. Beverly Reep is expected to present another option for redistricting. It is expected to be a compromise between the interests of people who want the schools to be racially balanced and those who want children to go to the school closest to their home.

The Pitt County Board of Education is expected to settle on a new redistricting plan in November. The plan would go into effect for the 2011-2012 school year.

Monday's school board meeting is at 6 p.m. at St. James United Methodist Church, 2000 E. 6th Street, Greenville.

Monday's meeting will also include time to honor and remember Michael Dixon, the late school board member who died at the end of July.
