Changes on the Wake County school board mean new leadership roles for board members Kevin Hill and Susan Evans.
Hill will now chair the board's facilities committee, replacing the departed Chris Malone. Hill, who can now chair committees since he's no longer board chair, will lead the committee as it takes the lead role in developing the new school bond issue.
New board chairman Keith Sutton has asked Evans to take over for him as chair of the board's finance committee. Evans will chair the lead committee on developing the school budget in what could be a tough funding year with county commissioners.
Sutton said Tuesday that other committee changes will be made after Malone's successor is appointed Feb. 5. That person will draw some committee assignments.
For now at least, none of the minority board members chair any of the committees. During 2010-11, minority members chaired a few committees such as finance and community relations.
