Is the Wake County school board looking for a backdoor in case it loses accreditation from AdvancED?
The school board is set to discuss and vote today on its 2011 Legislative Agenda, which lists the issues it will lobby the General Assembly on. One of the items in the draft agenda is to "review the state accreditation process and provide clarification to the school system."
During the AdvancED fight, school board attorney Ann Majestic has broached to school board members the possibility of seeking state accreditation. The problem is it no longer exists in the form that Wake would want.
After talking about delaying the vote on the agenda until March 15, the board agreed to vote on the legislative agenda.
At issue is the March 31 deadline for certain bills to be in bill drafting in the state House.
One issue that will likely wait two weeks is adding allowing the board chair to vote on all issues. The Democratic members objected to voting today, saying they want more information first on why the prohibition was added to the merger law.
