You might want to show up early for today's school board meeting.
Some 200 people are expected to watch in person the four new board members get sworn in. Plus, you've got a lot of people who may show up at the public comment section.
All this will occur while most of the people in the Administration building are still at work. Parking spots will be at a premium.
The swearing in of the new members will be the first order of business when the meeting starts at 3 p.m. in the main board room, 3600 Wake Forest Road in Raleigh.
Former N.C. Supreme Court Chief Justice I. Beverly Lake will administer the oath to Debra Goldman.
Senior Administrative Law Judge Fred Morrison will swear in both Chris Malone and John Tedesco. Fred Morrison is the husband of board member Carolyn Morrison.
Former N.C. Appeals Court Justice Joe John will swear in Deborah Prickett.
Then will come the reception. The meeting will resume around 5:15 p.m. when they'll vote on a new vice chair and do some other procedural stuff.
The public comment section is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. It's normally done at 4 p.m.
You'll likely hear today from supporters of magnet schools and the weekly Wednnesday early dismissals as they make their pitch to the new board.
