Writer urges folks to attend forums

The Board of Education’s community forum meeting for the consolidation of Clarkton School of Discovery and Booker T. Washington is scheduled for Tuesday, May 2, at 6 pm. The meeting will be held in the Media Center at the Clarkton School of Discovery.

The Board of Education is proposing the following: Booker T. Washington will be closed. The fifth-grade of Booker T. Washington will be moved to Clarkton School of Discovery. The K-4 at Booker T. Washington will be moved to other schools in the county (Bladenboro, Elizabethtown, East Arcadia).

At the Board of Education and Board of County Commissioners combined meeting in April, Superintendent Robert Taylor stated that the Clarkton School of Discovery will continue to house Project Challenge (magnet school).

Please, please add this to your schedule to attend this most important meeting for not only the Clarkton area but also be informed of other proposals on a county-wide basis. This is your time to voice your concerns and/or approval. We have been working on this for about two years. So please make the time to come and support us.

Thank you.
