The Pitt County School Board held its 4th out of six scheduled meetings on its long range facility plan.

People voiced their opinions about the plan Monday at Farmville Central High School.

For the fourth straight week, people for and against the proposed plan presented their case in front of the school board Monday night.

People took to the podium, letting the members of the school board know the concerns they harbor about the plan.

In the case of Farmville, the facility plan intends to add 12 classrooms to Farmville Central High School along with expanding the kitchen and dinning area. The total cost to complete this project would run just over 4 million dollars.

But, parents have a bigger concern over the configuration of the schools not just here in Farmville, but system wide if this plan is carried out.

Moseley is referring to the reconfiguration of G.R. Whitfield and Chicod schools. The plan intends to break up the kindergarten through 8th grade schools, transforming them into elementary and middle schools.

The school board says the facility plan is not set in stone and a decision will not be made until March.

The board will hold two more listening and informational sessions beginning Tuesday at North Pitt High School and next Monday, February 23rd at J.H. Rose High School in Greenville.
