One of the variables for next school year is whether there will be a big increase in the number of year-round and traditional-calendar applicants in Wake County.
As noted in today's article, staff plans to approve all calendar applications filed next month except in those rare cases when a special education requirement would be an issue. While the percentage of approvals will go up, Asst. Supt. Chuck Dulaney said they're not expecting much of an increase in total applicants.
In the case of traditional-calendar applicants, the reason why they might not increase much could be a source of anger for some parents.
