School equity, student transfers and athletics will be on the agenda for today's first meeting of the reconstituted Wake County school board policy committee.
Now chaired by board member Jim Martin, the committee will review the proposed equity policy and its R&P. Martin worked on the policy when he was a community member of the economically disadvantaged student performance task force.
The committee has slotted half of the two-hour meeting to talk about the revised transfer policy before it's referred back to the full board on Tuesday.
Next comes discussion of proposed revisions to the cocurricular activities and athletics policy, along with its R&P. Changes are being made to reflect the new student assignment plan's impact on athletic eligibility.
One interesting thing to watch is the interaction between Martin and Debra Goldman, who was the former committee chairwoman and is now the vice chair. She and Martin have had some heated exchanged at board meetings.
