A lengthy commitee of the whole agenda sets the pace for today's Wake County school board meeting.
The COW meeting is starting an hour earlier than normal at noon to open up with the discussion of last week's facilities committee recommendation to scrap the Forest Ridge High site. Staff has warned it could cost $15.5 million more to go with an alternative site but new board members are skeptical.
Next will come capital plan funding and schedule changes to Plan 2000, Plan 2004 and the current program, CIP 2006. Among the topics will be using federal stimulus dollars to speed up the construction of Rolesville MIddle by a year.
