Magnet programs, academic achievement and regional assignment zones are among the items on today's Wake County school board student assignment committee agenda.
David Ansbacher, senior director for magnet programs, will present info on the magnet program. As noted earlier in the week, the magnet program will be impacted by how the board handles the return of more than 5,000 Southeast Raleigh kids back to the area.
David Holdzkom, assistant superintendent for evaluation and research, will present information comparing the academic performance of individual zones in the four sample maps.
Laura Evans, senior director o growth and planning, will present info on possible regional assignment zones. School board member John Tedesco, chairman of the committee, has talked about having regional zones for middle school and high school choice in addition to the smaller community assignment zones.
By the end of the meeting, Tedesco hopes to get some consensus on which of the four sample maps to have staff continue to work on.
The meeting will run from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the board conference room, 3600 Wake Forest Road in Raleigh.
