The board of directors of the Bedford at Falls River Homeowners Association is charging that collusion led to the Wake County school board not backing the community's efforts to stay at Wakefield High School.
In a handout provided to HOA members, the group points to e-mail messages between school board member Kevin Hill and Heritage High Principal Mark Savage. In one message to Hill, Savage writes he's "concerned" how the loss of the middle class Bedford students would impact diversity at Heritage.
Hill e-mailed back to Savage that he would "plan to stonewall any changes at this point in the year because we have not had hearings or done due diligence." The board deferred to Hill because Bedford is located in his North Raleigh district.
