Town of Pike Road to host school board information sessions | News
During the month of June, the Town of Pike Road will host three information and input sessions covering the topic of the appointment of the municipal school board. The first session will take place Thursday, June 7, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. at Pike Road Town Hall on Vaughn Road. The event is open to the public, and Town of Pike Road residents are encouraged to attend, ask questions and offer their input through various planned exercises.
Two additional sessions will be held in other locations throughout the town, offering residents the opportunity to participate in or near their own neighborhood. The two additional sessions will take place Monday, June 18, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. at Peace Baptist Church on Barnes Road and Monday, June 25, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. at Pike Road Volunteer Fire Department Station 1 on Wallahatchie Road.
The events will feature a brief presentation by leaders of the school effort, detailing the qualification and application procedure, as well as the expectations of school board members. Attendees will then have a chance to ask questions and record their hopes for the characteristics of individual board members.
Pike Road Mayor Gordon Stone described this as the next step in forming the Pike Road public school system, established by a resolution of the town council in December 2010.
“We are excited to be moving forward with the process of building our school system,” said Stone. “Determining the team that will lead the system is a critical step and one that will affect the school for many years to come. That is why we want to communicate to our residents—our potential school board members—about the process and receive their input at this stage.”
