Opting out of year-round

Year-round schools will be back in session today, but more than 3,900 students won't be there.

A total of 3,927 students chose not to take their base assignment at a year-round school for the 2008-09 school year. This consists of people who applied this February or last February and those who didn't give their consent this year.

Guess which year-round school had the most number of people who opted out?

Ending the school year

One of the most controversial school years in recent Wake history will come to an end today.

More than 30,000 students at year-round schools will attend their final day of classes for the 2007-08 school year. For many, it was their first experience with the calendar due to the conversion of 22 schools last July.

It's going to be a short break for a lot of those students because the 2008-09 school year will start on July 7

Reallocating the money for WFRHS

A very divided board of commissioners signed off today on the $62.8 million renovation project for Wake Forest-Rolesville High School.

The commissioners agreed to delay the opening of two new elementary schools to help provide a majority of the funding for the renovations. The plan calls for the high school to be emptied out for the 2009-10 school year with students going to the new Heritage High while the campus is renovated.

School leaders said the timing was critical for the renovations while growth had slowed enough among younger students for the new schools not to be needed so soon.

Joe Bryan, chairman of the board of commissioners, had the resolution modified to say that the school board was consciously changing what was in the 2006 bond issue and the CIP by making the request.
