Johnston County school board members Kay Carroll and Ronald Johnson were involved in a spirited discussion during their July 13th meeting.
Carroll said Johnson was critical of the board for not adopting a CRT policy before it was mentioned by Johnston County Commissioners even though Johnson serves on the Policy Review Committee.
Johnson presented a draft policy during the meeting, however an amendment to an existing policy was approved instead.
Chairman Todd Sutton then accused Johnson of saying a CRT policy was not needed then reversing his stance. Johnson corrected Sutton saying an independent policy was needed not an amendment.
Carroll and Johnson also disagreed on a consulting contract discussed in closed session. Johnston County Report will have more on the consulting contract in a future news article.
We reached out to all three board members, Mr. Carroll, Mr. Johnson and Chairman Sutton. All three declined to comment about the verbal dispute.
