Final Redistricting Map Due Out Today

A Pitt County Schools spokeswoman says the map outlining one final modification to the new middle school zones will be posted on the school system's website Friday.

The Pitt County Board of Education voted to make a slight modification or "tweak" to the middle school map at its board meeting Monday. The meeting took place after the final public hearing on the redistricting issue.

The school board is scheduled to vote on the proposed redistricting maps at their meeting Monday at 7 p.m. If the maps are approved, the new school zones will go into effect for the 2011-2012 school year.

Emotions ran high as school redistricting discussions in Pitt County is coming to an end. A final decision is expected in just one week.

Monday night was the last time the school board would hear from community members on their feelings about the new possible redistricting plan. The two recommended maps that were suggested by Superintendent Dr. Beverly Reep at the last school board meeting were the main topic of discussion in Monday nights meeting.

Many speakers were opposed to the redistricting plans while a few parents were satisfied. Second grader Alyssa Powell was smaller than the others that walked to the podium, but had a big voice seeing that she would be a student that could be moved in the redistricting process.
"My school has always nice teachers has a nice principal and nice janitors that are there," said the second grader.

The school board plans to make its final vote next Monday November 15th on which students will be moved next school year.
