Johnston School Superintendent Continues Push For Bond Referendum

Posted October 12, 2004 7:06 a.m. EDT

— Johnston County Schools are over capacity and falling behind in construction.

Superintendent Dr. Anthony Parker says it is important to have a bond referendum in the next year.

He will talk about the plan at Tuesday's school board meeting. The board will then take its proposal to county commissioners.

Both boards expect to put a plan before voters next spring.

Johnston County Schools identified $156 million in building needs.
