New legislation out of Raleigh would shrink the Pitt County School Board, one of the largest in the state with 12 members. Some people have been working for years to reduce that number.
Republican state representative Brian Brown says the Pitt County delegation in the general assembly has agreed to do that.
Brown says this new legislation will mandate the board be reduced to 9 members with corresponding individual districts, and reduce the terms of board members from 6 to 4 years. The elections would also be held in November instead of in May.
