Nearly 14,000 Wake County families participated in the test drive of the blue plan.
School officials say that got 21,769 responses from 13,805 unique addresses and 1,197 nodes before the test drive ended Friday. The survey responses will be sent to the SAS Institute, which is developing the algorithm that will be used to determine how seats will be filled in the selection lottery.
No updated information was provided on the individual responses to questions such as how important was it for families to be sent to their closest schools.
Extending the participation deadline accomplished the goal of getting more than 12,000 families to participate.
