Wake County school board committees are likely to come back soon.
Wake County school board chairman Kevin Hill said that the restoration of committees will be brought up at the Jan. 10 board meeting. He said the decision was made after consulting with board vice chairman Keith Sutton and Superintendent Tony Tata.
It was pretty clear that the new board majority was moving in this direction following the discussion at the Dec. 10 board retreat.
Next will come the potentially sticky issue of handing out committee chairs and assignments. Will Hill do what former board chairman Ron Margiotta did in 2010 by giving most of the committee assignments and chairs to members of the majority?
