The Wake County school board's policy committee will tackle today enrollment capping and the way the board operates.
The capping policy has been meant to apply to schools for the foliating school year. Since the caps proposed in the draft 2013-14 assignment plan would affect schools for this school year, some revisions might be needed.
The committee will also discuss the policy on the rules of order that govern board meetings.
The committee will also discuss the policy on the duties of officers, namely the board chair and vice chair. The discussion comes a week before the board's annual organization meeting when officers will be selected for the next year.

It would formalize into the policy the practice that's been followed the past year that allows the board chair to vote on all issues. The board chair has been voting on everything, and not just to break ties, since the General Assembly made it possible last year.
