Impacting the reassignment plan

The school board has some major decisions to make on Tuesday that could impact even a one-year reassignment plan.

A lot rides on which new schools and renovation projects stay on track or are delayed due to the borrowing crunch. More changes could occur depending on the review of the magnet secondary schools.

One big question is whether the school board should go ahead with the $62.8 million renovation project at Wake Forest-Rolesville High School. While delaying the project would save a lot of money, it could create other problems.

Reconsidering a school land deal

The school board isn't the only group in the mood to reconsider things.

County Commissioner Lindy Brown said today she's reconsidering her vote against buying an 80-acre parcel off Forestville Road north of Raleigh for a new high school. She said she'll ask commissioners to now support the deal after getting new information at today's joint meeting.

School board members and administrators made a pitch for the commissioners to reconsider last month's 4-3 vote. School leaders cited a new lower price for the land, the unsuitability of alternative sites and the impact on student assignment.
