The hot topic of revising Wake County's student assignment policy will be back on the agenda Thursday.
The agenda for Thursday's joint meeting of the student achievement and policy committees includes discussion of the three pillars of Policy 6200 — achievement, proximity and stability. This is the prelude to the changes that the board majority would make to reinstate diversity into assignment.
The board had been working to get the revision approved before the 2013-14 plan was adopted but slowed down when it opted to use the 2011-12 maps as the baseline for this fall. But if they want to incorporate achievement explicitly into assignments for 2014-15 and beyond they need to revise the policy first.
The committees will also discuss an update on revising the grading policy and an update on a new equity policy and achievement gap policy.
