WCPS Awaits Parents Decision On Edgewood Students

This Thursday, July 18, is the deadline for some Edgewood Community Developmental School parents to decide where their child will go to school for 2019-2020.

Wayne County Public Schools was asking parents of pre-K through 4th grade Edgewood students to decide where their child would go next school year.  First year Pre-K would start their schooling at Meadow Lane.

Only a fraction of those Edgewood parents have weighed in on whether they want their children to continue class at the current Edgewood School building or transfer over to the new Meadow Lane Elementary School.

At a special meeting this week, the Wayne County Board of Education decided to honor the preference of the parents that had responded.

WCPS Superintendent Dr. Michael Dunsmore says Thursday is the deadline for Edgewood Parents to respond and say which school they want their children to attend next school year.  After that, the district will assume the students will attend classes at Meadowlane.

The Edgewood School issue surfaced again at this week’s meeting of the Wayne County Board of Commissioners with Rachel Radford of Goldsboro bringing her frustrations over the situation to the board Tuesday.

Wayne County Manager Craig Honeycutt explained the county is still in the dark regarding Edgewood’s operations for the next school year.
