It looks like most Wake County school board committees will be dissolved at the request of Superintendent Tony Tata.
Tata said at the March 15 board work session that he'll recommend doing away with the committees and presenting the information directly to the committee of the whole. He cited the amount of staff time spent on committee work for his recommendation.
The board is expected to officially discuss the issue at the April 5 committee of the whole (COW) meeting. While it wasn't spelled out March 15, it's expected that the change will only affect standing committees such as facilities, finance and policy and not the ad-hoc committees like the economically disadvantaged student performance task force.
