MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) - Today, dozens of parents and community members took to the streets. They marched from the Music Hall to the Bibb County Board of Education Office.
They were hoping Dr. Romain Dallemand or at least all the board members would be there waiting. Gary Bechtel was the only one there fielding their questions. Director of Risk Management for the Bibb County School District, David Gowan, said repeatedly the superintendent was unavailable.
There was no yelling as they marched, but they fired questions at the only man who stood at the door. They were questions Bibb County School Board member Gary Bechtel has himself.
"I've had no detailed proformas on the amount it's going to cost you, first year, second year, third year, fourth year, fifth year," says Bechtel.
Bechtel says year long schooling, cost of extending the day for just some students, and hiring consultants are among the reasons he's not confident in the Macon Miracle.
"I don't think it's been rolled out very well that we can make an educated decision," says Bechtel.
Right now, the parents can't believe in the Macon Miracle because the Board of Education and Dr. Romain Dallemand aren't giving them a reason to believe in the man behind it.
"Our emails are returned unread. We are posting blogs on the site, they are blocked. No phone calls are being returned," says Angel Hopper Davis, parent.
Once again, they hit a wall.
"If the board don't know what the answers to the questions are, then that raises some serious concerns," says Bibb County Resident, Darren Latch.
The superintendent and the school board will hold another open forum tomorrow night at Central High School tomorrow night at 6pm. Bechtel says there is no set date on when they will vote on the plan.
