Here's a quick recap of today's Wake County school board work session.
Bob Snidemiller, senior director of transportation, talked about how they're taking steps for the 2013-14 school year to avoid a repeat of this school year's bus problems. Steps include looking to hire 104 additional bus drivers, doing a more realistic analysis of routes and having drivers do practice runs during the actual times of day they'd be on the road.
School board member Jim Martin repeated his concerns the bond issue will fail if county commissioners take over school construction. He unsuccessfully tried to get wording included in the resolution requesting the bond that would talk about ensuring the quality of the projects that would be funded.
