Budgets, bell schedules and the voluntary desegregation resolution will be among the topics on Tuesday's Wake County school board agenda.
During the committee of the whole meeting that starts at 1 p.m., the board will discuss the bell schedules for this fall. They'll focus on whether to adopt schedules that would start most elementary schools at 9:30 a.m. this fall or pursue other options that would start them at 9:15 a.m.
One option presented by staff to come up with $748,000 to hire enough bus drivers to start at 9:15 a.m .is to withhold some local teacher pay raises and to use salaries from vacant positions.
Ticket vouchers will still be issued beginning 10:30 a.m. Tuesday. The COW meeting is still in the board conference room despite this week's request from the Great Schools in Wake Coalition to move the location.
