The Wake County school board will look at how to improve school security and school transportation today and also take another crack at buying the former YWCA building in Raleigh.
During the board work session, school security staff will present an update on the review that was launched following last month's Connecticut school shooting. One byproduct is today's vote on hiring an unarmed security guard for every elementary school.
Also during the work session, the board will hear the results of the transportation review that was launched because of the bus problems at the start of the school year. Transportation staff will make recommendations on changes.
At the end of the regular meeting, the board will take another vote on buying the YWCA building. County commissioners rejected a revised deal earlier this month but said the school board could try again.
