It looks like AdvancED will be discussed by the Wake County school board on Monday.
School board chairman Ron Margiotta has just scheduled a special called board meeting at 4 p.m. Monday at Cary High School before that evening's public hearing on the student reassignment plan. The agenda calls for a closed session to protect "attorney-client privilege," the same reason used at last week's special meeting to discuss AdvancED.
The only reason the issue wasn't discussed by the board this week was because of scheduling conflicts with board attorney Jonathan Blumberg.
The outcome of the meeting likely isn't in doubt now that board vice chairwoman Debra Goldman has announced that she's accepting AdvancED's terms for the accreditation review. Her vote means that she and the Democrats now have a majority to proceed with the review.
Don't look for school board members to have legal counsel at the meetings with AdvancED when the review team comes in February. It's possible some of the other Republican board members who objected might refuse to be interviewed, which could impact the review.
The meeting has now been rescheduled for 8 a.m. Tuesday at 3600 Wake Forest Road in Raleigh. It will take place before the student reassignment work session that's scheduled to begin at 9 a.m.
They've now confirmed that AdvancED will be discussed in closed session. There will be a public comment session at 8:30 a.m. on AdvancED before a potential board vote.
