-Press Release, Granville County Public Schools
The Granville County Board of Education met in a special work session on Monday, October 26, 2020, to review and discuss school reorganization in the district.
Previously, the Board had commissioned the administration to prepare two separate, official studies for potential school closures. The Board had identified both Wilton Elementary School and Creedmoor Elementary School as the subject of the two written studies which were presented Monday night.
Following the presentation of both studies, the Board spent time deliberating and discussing the topic in detail, ultimately passing a motion 6-1 to defer taking further action. Instead, the Board will refer the matter to a special task force with members appointed by the Board Chairman to develop strategic thinking on potential reorganization models for the district. This task force could be convened as early as December 2020, following the appointment of three new Board members.
This effectively removed the possibility of any action being taken that could impact the operation of either school for the 2021-2022 academic year.
