How does the idea of closing school for one day sound as a way to help school employees take off the 10 hours required under Gov. Bev Perdue's furlough order?
That idea was proposed at today's school board meeting by Jennifer Lanane, president of Wake NCAE. She argued that school employees won't find the time any other way to take off the 10 hours.
Lanane asked the school board to back the group's call for closing school for one day. There was no immediate reaction from the school board.
The school board passed a resolution asking the state to let them shorten the school year by a day.
