Look for a protest outside outside today's Wake County school board meeting over the new student assignment plan.
Parents from Carpenter Elementary have secured a permit from Cary Police to picket on the sidewalk in front of the Central Services Building. They're coming with signs and bullhorns for the demonstration.
Several parents will also speak during public comment at the board meeting. They're objecting how the new plan has Carpenter feeding into East Cary Middle.
The feeder is supposed to provide calendar continuity for the year-round students. But the Carpenter parents say they want to go to a closer middle school. A number of families now go to Davis Drive Middle.
