OXFORD — Granville County’s school board has once again backpedaled from one of the decisions stemming from its school-consolidation debate, this time agreeing to delay by a year a one-grade downsizing of the district’s middle schools.

The move to postpone until 2023-24 the proposed conversion of middle schools that now serve grades 6 through 8 into schools only for seventh and eighth grades came during the board’s Monday meeting, after members reported on the results of their “listening tour” of the district’s campuses.
