It looks like Wake is changing the way it handles JROTC programs.
As noted in today's North Raleigh News article, Millbrook High plans to start an Army JROTC program in spring 2010 and Garner High has expressed interest in getting one. Other high schools may have to go through extra hurdles in the future.
During an update on JROTC in the district last month, administrators told school board members they'll begin looking at getting programs on a system level than on a school by school basis.
School board member Lori Millberg said she was pleased by the change.
As with other high school programs, board members are concerned about equity across the school district.
Millbrook would become the fifth Wake high school to have a Junior ROTC unit. Schools that want a program have to request one from a military service branch. Nationwide, close to 700 schools are on waiting lists.
