You still might have a chance to line up a visit this week with new Wake County Superintendent Anthony Tata.
As noted in Friday's article by Thomas Goldsmith, Tata will speak with the Wake County Taxpayers Association while he's in town this week. But school board chairman Ron Margiotta, who is organizing Tata's itinerary, said today that he's nowhere near completing the schedule for the rest of the Thursday and Friday trip.
Tim Simmons, VP of communications for the Wake Education Partnership, says the WEP won't hold a separate meeting with Tata this week because several of its leaders will be part of other meetings with the new superintendent.
Simmons also said they'll also help out with the Jan. 14 reception for Tata that's being sponsored by the Greater Raleigh Chamber of Commerce.
