Work will resume today on setting the ground work for a 2013 Wake County school construction bond issue.
The school board's facilities committee will continue discussion today on the draft capital planning issues that would frame the next construction program. The committee will also receive information on the process for determining needs for new schools.
One of the questions facing the school board and ultimately the county commissioners is whether to go for a referendum in spring or fall 2013.
A spring bond issue would have low voter turnout since nothing else is on the ballot but it would speed up when schools could be built. A fall bond issue would attract a larger turnout but could push the opening of new schools back by a year because of when the money would be available.
Today's meeting was cancelled becuase of a lack of a quorum.
School board members Susan Evans and Jim Martin attended the meeting. Evans said that Chris Malone, the committee chairman, called in sick. She said they waited until 4:30 p.m., 30 minutes after the meeting was supposed to start, to see if board member Deborah Prickett would arrive.
