• County Leaders To Meet With Parents About Overcrowded School

    Updated:
    HUNTERSVILLE, N.C.,None - Mecklenburg County leaders will meet parents to answer questions about a controversial funding decision.

    Parents in Huntersville have been waiting for a new elementary school to be built on Stumptown Road. The new school would help relieve massive overcrowding at nearby Torrence Creek Elementary, which currently has nearly 700 students in mobile classrooms.

    Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools leaders put the new school near the top of its priority list for funding.

    But county leaders had criteria of their own, which put the project at the bottom.

    "This is not a perfect process," Commissioner Karen Bentley said. "This is the first year we've done this. We're certainly willing to take a look at the process to see if we've missed something."

    Bentley and other county officials are meeting at Torrence Creek Elementary on Monday at 6:30 p.m.
