Deborah Prickett, a longtime educator and former Wake teacher, announced today she'll run for the District 7 school board seat.
In her press release, Prickett criticizes the school district for "repeated reassignments" and the use of mandatory year-round schools. That issue could resonate in District 7, where complaints about the conversion of the Leesville schools could motivate a lot of voters.
District 7 includes northwest Raleigh, Morrisville and part of Cary. The seat is now held by Patti Head, who isn't running for reelection.
