Pitt County School Board Approves New School And Several Other Projects

Pitt county schools met Monday night and approved several plans discussed in the long range planning meetings over the past few weeks

Schools spokesperson Heather Mayo says the board approved building a new elementary school that will be located on Allen road. New additions have been approved for D.H. Conley, Eastern Elementary, and Farmville Central high schools.

The faculty will discuss reassigning students at A.G. Cox school over the summer due to overcrowding.

Sewer lines will be run to Chicod, Stokes and Pactolus schools.

Third Street school will be closed and some students will be moved to Sadie Salter school. Sadie Salter will be converted to a pre-k center and will also house some central offices.

    Why don't they build two big school in the Pitt County and send all the students to those two schools like the board of Education is doing in Martin county

    If they don't take care of the new shcools, they will be no good in just a few years. Take a look at what is happening in Beaufort County with Washington High School. The school is not that old and now to repair it will have to come from 2 years budgets. Why do not the school systems take care of what they have in the first place?

    OF COURSE, AGCox gets put on the back burner AGAIN! Oh to have representation on the school board would be soooo nice!

    Even if they build this school in a nice neighborhood, it will eventually turn into a ghetto in the coming years.

    Several plans discussed were; are we going to hold parents responsible for the actions of their child. Do we have the right to disciplinary action without the presents of an attorney? Can we require that your child behave? Should we teach them the proper way "how to fire a weapon?" Can we tell them what drugs are good for them and which are not. Should we explain sex to them? What should we do? We are subjected to law suites by lawyers. Our hands are tied, and we are run over by the students. If you have the answer, please tell us.

    Maybe Mrs. Perdue needs to go to the schools that are in bad shape and inspect them. Maybe, the money she is taking from the "Education Lottery" to help the state with its short fall actually go to the schools instead wasting. The whole point of the lottery was to help the schools. Our schools in Pitt County are in bad shape. Yes, they are trying to build new Ones. What about the older ones. They need to give the money back to the schools. Some of the schools don't have text books for kids. We tell the teacher to teach them but they don't have the supplies to teach. Most have to buy stuff for their class out of their pocket with out getting paid back so they can just teach our children. What will it take for the government to wake up and fix the problem. If it keeps going their won't be education program in Pitt County. They keep cutting and taking away. With nothing to place back.
