The WakeEd blog is devoted to discussing and answering questions about the major issues facing the Wake County school system. How will the new student assignment plan balance diversity, stability, proximity and stability? How will Jim Merrill replace Tony Tata as the new superintendent of the state's largest district? How will voters react to a $810 million school construction bond referendum on Oct. 8 ballot? How will this fall's school board elections impact the future of the district?

WakeEd is maintained by The News & Observer's Wake schools reporter, T. Keung Hui. While Keung posts information and analysis on the issues, keep us posted on your suggestions, questions, tips and what you're doing to cope with the changes in Wake's schools.

Bringing back the school board committees in January

Bookmark and Share

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?
