Rock Hill Schools Superintendent Lynn Moody says she’s excited about the turnout at an interest meeting Tuesday as district leaders explained the iRock program to parents and the greater Rock Hill community.

Moody says the board is charged with implementing the program — either in phases or perhaps all at once. That decision may come by the end of February.
