Image of three people talking and the words public forum.The Cumberland County Board of Education will be holding a public forum on Wednesday, December 13 at 5:45 p.m. at Douglas Byrd Middle School to discuss the Ireland Drive/Byrd Middle School Plan. This proposal would convert Ireland Drive Middle (currently 6th grade only) to grades 6 through 8, and also convert Douglas Byrd Middle (currently grades 7 and 8) to grades 6 through 8. Each school would have their own attendance area. This plan will only affect those who live in the current Ireland Drive/Douglas Byrd District.  In the event the proposal is not approved, Ireland Drive would remain a 6th-grade school, and would continue to be paired with Douglas Byrd Middle for 7th and 8th grades.

The students worked alongside Technology staffers by taking 1,000 discarded computers and using half of them as parts to refurbish the other half. “This effort truly demonstrates the dedication of CCS’ staff and students to help those less fortunate in our community,” said CCS’ Interim Superintendent Tim Kinlaw.
