It's looking like Broughton High only has a little more than a week to remain as a magnet school.
The school board agreed today to reconsider its decision to keep the magnet program at Broughton. A special meeting has been scheduled for Dec. 10 to give parents time to respond and for staff to suggest which school should get Broughton's International Baccalaureate program.
The formal vote will take place next week. But a majority of board members indicated today they'd support the switch.
Led by school board member Beverley Clark, they said Broughton is healthy enough that it can do well without having the magnet program. She said Broughton shouldn't have gotten the magnet program in 1999.
One of the questions is whether another school will be magnetized.
School board member Lori Millberg proposed today that the IB program should be relocated to Knightdale High due to the school's proximity to I-540.
Options proposed by parents include Millbrook and Athens Drive high schools.
Next week's meeting will be held on Dec. 10 at 9:30 a.m. at 3600 Wake Forest Road, Raleigh.
