Student assignment, early release days and the election of a new chair are among the things that the Wake County school board will deal with today.
During the work session, the board will discuss potential changes to the 2013-14 assignment plan. You could hear discussion on, among other things, letting the Durant Trails families keep Durant Road elementary and middle schools as their year-round options.
Also during the work session, the board will discuss whether to hold the six early release days per student in the 2013-14 school year on Fridays or to move them to Wednesdays.
After the work session, the board will hold its organizational meeting to elect a chair and vice chair. It's expected that Keith Sutton will be elected chairman.
