The new budget being released this afternoon by Wake County Superintendent Tony Tata will understandably get most of the focus at the school board work session.
But another topic that will get discussion is whether the school board should keep its current committee structure. Much of the issue revolves around whether it's a drain on staff time for them to be involved in the various committees.
It's the latest chapter in the debate over whether the board should operate with committees, or at least the standing ones.
Supt. Tony Tata is recommending eliminating all the standing board committees and dealing with issues instead at the committee of the whole.
Tata cited all the time staff spends preparing for and recovering from committee meetings.
More details later.
