U.S. Supreme Court: Diversity Based On Race Not Allowed

The Pitt County School Board is trying to figure out how a U.S. Supreme Court decision today will impact it.

The high court rejected school diversity plans that take students' race into account. Pitt County Schools decided in 2005 to relocate students based on race. 4,200 students were moved around the county to begin that process for the 2006-2007 school year.

With this court decision the school board is talking with its attorney, wondering, if this case could effect redistricting. The question is if Pitt County falls under the same guidelines as these other school boards.

School officials didn't want to talk Thursday, but are expecting to hold a news conference Friday morning.
