We've got the Enloe High naming controversy, the relocation of Central Office to Cary and the performance of low-income students on the various Wake County school board agendas today.
The agenda for the policy committee meeting that begins at 10 a.m. includes a discussion on whether to change the policy that prevents naming or renaming schools after people. The policy would need to be changed in case the board renames Enloe High School.
Another potentially interesting discussion topic is a review of the policy on distribution of publications by non-students.
At noon, the school board will hold what's supposed to be a quick meeting to vote on a resolution requesting state permission to relocate Central Office from Wake Forest Road to Crossroads Corporate Park.
The board is voting on the resolution after the county commissioners approved the deal Monday.
Then at 4 p.m., the economically disadvantaged student performance task force will meet at Garner High School, 2101 Spring Drive.
School board member John Tedesco, the chairman of the task force, said the first hour will include presentations about encouraging minority students to take Algebra I and advanced math classes. The issue was raised last year in the SAS EVAAS report.
Tedesco said the second hour of the meeting will be a continuation of last month's discussion on the goals of the task force.
The policy committee agreed today to recommend allowing schools to be named after people. If approved by the full board, it would also allow them to rename Enloe High.
The full board voted today to ask the state Local Government Commission for permission to relocate Central Office to Cary. School staff said the LGC will discuss Wake's plan on July 6.
