The Wake County school board's community relations committee will discuss today online signup to speak at board meetings and other ways to improve communications with the public.
The board had agreed last week to allow for online registration at board meetings. The community relations committee will go over the details today before the new procedure is implemented in October.
Also today, the committee will discuss ways to share information with the public and to discuss proposed design changes to the school district's website.
The meeting will run from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. at the Crossroads II building, 110 Corning Road in Cary.
As an ad hoc committee, the community relations committee survived the elimination of the standing committees.
The community relations committee has over the years wound up as a place where the board majority places the minority faction.
For instance, Ron Margiotta served as chairman of the community relations committee under the old board. The committe was later abolished by the old board.
Margiotta said he had liked the community relations committee so much that he revived it when he became board chairman.
The two co-chairs of the community relations committee are minority members Kevin Hill and Anne McLaurin. School board vice charwoman Debra Goldman is also on the committee as the majority's representative.
