Pitt County BOE to hear from parent group Monday night


The last Pitt County Board of Education meeting of the year is Monday night.

At the meeting, a parents group will be sharing their thoughts on strengths and weaknesses at Pitt County Schools.

The school board will hear about how they can improve from the group Parents for Public Schools of Pitt County.

The group has held a total of 21 meetings with more than 260 parents and community members throughout the year.

Information gathered from those meetings show that parents are pleased with communication at schools.

However, they also believe there could be safety improvements, such as adding secure corridor entries and increasing staff.

All of that information will be shared with the school board Monday night. 

“The overall goal is to help parents feel that their voices have been shared and heard and taken into account, so we hope leaving this report tonight, that the school board is able to understand the pulse of our community and use that as they continue to make decisions,” Kylene Dibble said.

Parents are also hoping to see more resources in rural areas of the county.

The group has already started community conversations for the upcoming school year.

To make your voice heard, contact Kylene Dibble at 252-758-1604, ext. 201, or kdibble@ppspittcounty.org
