ISD Considers Taking Over Carver Heights Elementary

Could Carver Heights Elementary School in Goldsboro be transferred into the Innovative School District?

The possibility has come up after the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction identified Carver Heights Elementary as a low-performing school.

Eric Hall, the Deputy State Superintendent of Innovation for the N.C. Department of Public Instruction, gave a presentation on how the ISD works to the Wayne County Board of Commissioners on Monday.

Hall says the ISD will eventually make a recommendation regarding Carver Heights to the State Board of Education this month.

If the State Board of Education accepts the recommendation, there will be two options for the local school district – either transfer Carver Heights Elementary into the Innovative School District or close the school.

Commissioner Joe Daughtery was surprised and embarrassed to learn Carver Heights was ranked as the worst elementary school in North Carolina based upon criteria presented by the Innovative School District.

Wayne County Public Schools Superintendent Michael Dunsmore told the commissioners, if there had been more warning, the district had options to address the shortcomings at Carver Heights Elementary.

Dunsmore says the Restart Program has already been successful at Goldsboro High School.

A public meeting was also held at Carver Heights Elementary Monday evening so the community could learn more about the potential transfer into the Innovative School District.
