Brock Road parents holding town hall meeting

School Board member Ray Lora says the Brock Road Elementary PTO is holding a town-hall style meeting Wednesday at 7 p.m.

Lora is expected to be there along with fellow School Board member Amanda Blalock and T.C. Waddy of the Board of County Supervisors.

Brock Road Elementary is located at 10207 Brock Road.

More than 60 people showed up at last night’s town hall meeting at Courtland Elementary and peppered Blalock, Lora and Board of Supervisors Chairman Gary Skinner with questions. After 1 1/2 hours, they had barely covered half a dozen questions in the lively give-and-take format.

Tomorrow, the School Board convenes for another all-day budget work session. The next one is scheduled for next Thursday. On Tuesday, they should get a clearer picture of how much funding the county will provide. County Executive Doug Barnes is to meet with school staff that day to tell them what he’s planning to recommend to the Board of County Supervisors.
