Carter County High School Consolidation Update


The Carter County Board of Education voted Tuesday night to move forward with the recommendations of the Local Planning Committee, which met and heard public feedback earlier this month.

Chris Perry was sworn in as board member during the meeting to fill a recent vacancy. He says next up is a public hearing conducted by an individual from outside the district on April 7. The person will record the thoughts and opinions of those who wish to attend one-on-one. They will later compile the videos into a report and film for the State Department of Education to take into consideration.

Assuming the state approves the plans, the Carter County B.O.E. can then begin fact finding, examining potential sites and actual costs for everything involved.
