The WakeEd blog is devoted to discussing and answering questions about the major issues facing the Wake County school system. How will the new student assignment plan balance diversity, stability, proximity and stability? How will Jim Merrill replace Tony Tata as the new superintendent of the state's largest district? How will voters react to a $810 million school construction bond referendum on Oct. 8 ballot? How will this fall's school board elections impact the future of the district?

WakeEd is maintained by The News & Observer's Wake schools reporter, T. Keung Hui. While Keung posts information and analysis on the issues, keep us posted on your suggestions, questions, tips and what you're doing to cope with the changes in Wake's schools.

Looking for Wake County families who plan to file a return to base school request

Bookmark and Share

The base declaration period for Wake County students to request a return to their base school for the upcoming school year starts Monday and runs through Jan. 14.

Examples of people who might file a request include students who want to leave a magnet school or who didn't get the school they wanted in the choice plan. You could also see people wanting to leave their calendar-option school.

Wake says approval will be guaranteed unless the person is seeking to return to a fully capped school. You've got 13 schools on the full-cap list for now.

I'd like to hear from you if you plan to file during the base declaration period. Please shoot me your contact info at khui@newsobserver.com.
