Should the Wake County school board go back to meeting at 3 p.m. for action meetings?
The school board will vote Tuesday on first reading of a policy revision to restore the use of two action meetings a month, which would both offer public comment. The prior board majority cut it to one action meeting a month with the second meeting becoming a work session with no public comment section.
The board is also going back, at least for tomorrow, to its old regular/action meeting time of 3 p.m.
School board chairman Kevin Hill pointed out that board policy says that "the regular meetings of the Board shall usually begin at 3:00 p.m." He noted how board member Debra Goldman has been a stickler at saying they should follow what's in board policy.
The prior majority had changed the start time for the regular meeting to 5:30 p.m., saying it would help people who can't make it out at 3 p.m.
But Hill said that there are some people who can make it at 3 p.m. but not at 5:30 p.m.
Hill said he'd support discussing having one regular meeting a month at 3 p.m. and the other at 5:30 p.m.
