Martin Co. school system asking parents to weigh in on reorganization

WILLIAMSTON, N.C. (WNCT) – One eastern North Carolina school system is asking parents to voice their thoughts on reorganization.

Last month, the board of education in Martin County started looking at a proposal to close South Creek Middle School and move East End Elementary School into the building.

Tuesday night, folks can weigh in at a public hearing in the South Creek High School auditorium. The meeting starts at 6:30 p.m.

This isn’t the first time Martin County Schools looks to close down a school.

Last year, Jamesville Middle School closed its doors because of low enrollment. And in 2010, the school board went from 4 high schools to just 2, amid a lot of opposition from parents.

This latest reorganization is part of a long term plan to move to a one high school, one middle school, and six elementary school system.
