Wake County school board chairman Keith Sutton will seek a leadership role on the National School Boards Association's Council of Urban Boards of Education (CUBE).
Sutton told his colleagues at the Feb. 19 board work session that he's been asked to seek a seat on CUBE's national steering committee. He asked if he had the board's blessing. No one objected.
CUBE gave the school system an award for its former socioeconomic diversity policy in 2009. CUBE represents more than 100 urban school districts in 35 states, Ontario and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
