End of Notice *************************************************************

The above meeting notice is In response to the public request by Rick Harrell at the last public hearing of the Board of Education and the School Superintendent. As noted above they have agreed to a joint public hearing with the County Commissioners about concerns with the BOE plans and the vote to close Aulander, Askewville and J.P. Law.

A major issue on the agenda at that meeting will be on the BOE vote to let the judge in the desgregation case order Bertie County to spend 35 million dollars and a request that the BOE explain why we do not yet have UNITARY STATUS.

It is imperative that we move quickly to stop the lawyer from the BOE from proceeding with any secret agreements with the U.S. Attorneys.
