Wake County school board members raise concerns about student assignment plan's impact on magnet schoolsSubmitted by KeungHui on 01/25/2012 - 07:00
How worried should the Wake County school system be about how the new student assignment plan is impacting the magnet schools?
As noted in today's article, the Democratic board members expressed concern Tuesday about the sharp decline in magnet applications. They also raised concerns that not enough academically identified students got accepted into Carnage and Ligon middle schools, which operate the AG Basics magnet theme.
“It seems to me that demand for magnets has gone down by half,” said new Democratic school board member Christine Kushner in remarks to staff members. “I’m concerned about that decline. I hope it’s something you are paying attention to.”
New Enloe football coach Mike Massey won’t be able to coach his Eagles until July. Massey knows that can be difficult for a first-year head coach, yet he has a plan to make sure the Eagles don’t fall behind other teams in the spring.
“I’m not going to wait,” said Massey, who has been an assistant principal at Wake Forest-Rolesville Middle School for the last two years. “The important thing is to assess our players now.”
Massey’s contract as an administrator will end on June 30. Massey said defensive backs coach Julian Lee will be leading and supervising the Eagles during their weight training program from now until July.
After being introduced to his new team Tuesday, Massey told his players he will implement his offensive and defensive philosophy soon.
Mike Massey has been named the new football coach at Enloe’s High School.
Massey, who is now an assistant principal at Wake Forest-Rolesville Middle School, was hired earlier this month by Tommy Moore, Enloe’s athletic director, and former Enloe principal Beth Cochran, who is now senior director of magnet programs at Wake County schools.
The Wake County school board appointed one permanent and five interim principals this evening.
Lisa Whitaker was named principal of Wake Early College of Health and Sciences in Raleigh with a salary of $85,659. She has been an assistant principal at Middle Creek High since 2008.
Gerald Pickett was hired to be interim principal of Enloe High in Raleigh with a salary equivalent to $127,496. He was principal of Fuquay-Varina from 2001 until he retired in 2005.
