The impact of last week's resolution scrapping work on the zone plan is uppermost on the minds of people at today's Wake County student assignment committee meeting.
School board member John Tedesco, chairman of the committee, opened the meeting by saying he was going "to address the 800 pound gorilla in the room" caused by last week's vote.
Tedesco said that the implications of the resolution are still being reviewed. He said he was going ahead with the previously scheduled discussion on equity and school funding issues because they're still relevant.
Board member Chris Malone said he had plenty to say about the situation the district is now in after the vote. Tedesco told him to bring it up at the end of the meeting when they discuss the next steps.
Board vice chairwoman Debra Goldman is not at today's meeting. She's not officially a committee member. But non-committee members Kevin Hill, Anne McLaurin, Deborah Prickett and Keith Sutton are here along with committee member Carolyn Morrison.
Today's meeting started 15 minutes late while the committee waited for Tedesco's arrival.
Committee members have also cancelled the Oct. 26 meeting because of scheduling issues and the Nov. 2 meeting because of Election Day. They'll meet twice in November and once in December.
