The new Wake County career technical education high school is poised to get a jump start today from the county commissioners.
The commissioners will hold a public hearing today on issuing $51.2 million in school bonds, with $19 million going toward construction of the CTE high school. The other $32 million would go toward projects to jump start the next school construction program.
The county plans to use "two-thirds bonds," meaning it can reissue up to two-thirds of the amount of bond debt it retired the previous year. This is generally used for smaller amounts and does not require a public vote in a bond referendum.
Commissioners approved issuing the bonds today.
