Hearing set on Rocky Mount school changes


The Nash-Rocky Mount Board of Education will hold a public hearing on plans to move O.R. Pope Elementary School beginning with the 2014-15 school year.

The hearing starts at 6 p.m. Tuesday at Pope Elementary, 226 Coleman Avenue, Rocky Mount.

The recommended plans are as follows:

• Move the current O.R. Pope student body to D.S. Johnson and Fairview Elementary school buildings effective beginning the 2014-15 school year.

• The kindergarten through second-grade students will be housed in the Fairview Elementary School building.

• Third- through fifth-grade students will be housed in the D.S. Johnson Elementary school building.

• The superintendent has also recommended to the school board that the current Fairview Elementary school building be renamed O.R. Pope Elementary School effective for the 2014-15 school year.

The public hearing provides the board the ability to gather feedback through public input before making its final decision. Individuals wishing to speak at the public hearing will have three minutes to speak. Board members will listen to their comments, but will not respond.

Contact Patricia Hollingsworth, Nash-Rocky Mount Schools’ chief public information officer, at pdhollingsworth@nrms.k12.nc.us or at 462-2509.
