Rocky Mount is on the verge of a school district demerger. What does that mean?
If approved, the demerger would send approximately 1,600 to 1,700 students living on the Edgecombe County side of Rocky Mount from Nash County Public Schools to Edgecombe County Public Schools.
In March 2022, EdNC joined a group organized by Cannon, including Superintendent Bridges and other ECPS leaders, ECPS Board Chair Rev. Privott, Rocky Mount Mayor Sandy Roberson and City Councilman T.J. Walker, and a Rocky Mount parent to visit two schools in New York City, the Brooklyn STEAM Center and Fannie Lou Hamer Freedom High School, that are rethinking high school education.
