The new middle school math placement guidelines will take a back seat at today's meeting of the Wake County school board economically disadvantaged student performance task force.
Only five minutes on today's agenda is scheduled for an update on the math placement stats presented at the last ED meeting. School board member John Tedesco, chairman of the task force, said administrators are still resolving whether the numbers accurately reflect minority enrollment this year in pre-algebra and Algebra I.
Far more time, 45 minutes, is set aside for discussion of a draft policy on equity and equality.
Also today, Chief Business Officer David Neter will discuss funding by school. Tedesco said he's asked Neter to bring the Fund 6 information for each school, which will show wide gaps in how much they individually have.
The task force will also review the three areas they'll focus on as a group.
The meeting runs from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. at Phillips High School, 1923 Milburnie Road in Raleigh.
