The question now is whether the Wake County school board will vote tonight on the NCSBA resolution opposing transferring school ownership to county commissioners.
During the work session, Democrats said they need to respond to the Wake commissioners making it a statewide issue over who should own, build and maintain schools. But Republican board members argued that passing the resolution would only add more fuel to the fire.
School board chairman Keith Sutton said he will decide whether to remove the resolution from the meeting agenda and instead discuss the issue at Thursday's joint meeting of both boards.
Sutton said he will leave the resolution on the agenda because it's a statewide issue that the N.C. School Boards Association wants districts to vote on.
