The Board has put the item on the action agenda for their Feb. 14 early afternoon meeting. At the Jan. 24 meeting, Stokes County Finance Director Julia Edwards presented them with a revised application to request the lottery funds from the state’s Public School Building Capital Fund via the North Carolina Education Lottery. The money in question would be applied to the new elementary school slated for the Yadkin Township.
Edwards informed the Board that the state won’t approve money for new construction of schools until a plan has been submitted to the Department of Public Instruction and approved by them. She said that it may be at least another month before the Stokes County Board of Education turns in any plans to DPI.
