A controversy surrounding Craven County Board of Education members having access to the school system’s principals’ meetings has seemingly been settled.

During their April 13 work session, the Board reached a consensus that going forward, the current principal of the year will update the board monthly with information from those meetings. 

The issue was raised last month by BOE member Kelli Muse.

In a March 25 Facebook post, Muse made public a series of texts between herself and Superintendent Meghan Doyle. In her texts to Doyle, Muse asked why the Board members do not have access to all district meetings, such as principals’ meetings.

Muse, who currently works with Onslow County Schools, said she sent the texts after discovering she did not have access to the Zoom link for a recent principals’ meeting.

Doyle responded that the decision was one for the full board to consider and that she would bring the issue to the board’s chair and vice-chair for discussion for the April 13 meeting agenda.
