The focus now switches from gathering information to discussing action steps for the Wake County school board's economically disadvantaged student performance task force.
The first three meetings of the task force have largely consisted of hearing presentations about different things going on in the district. But for today's agenda, the task force will focus on discussing what the "desired state" should be for serving Wake's economically disadvantaged students.
The task force will discuss what things are helping Wake to move to the "desired state" and what's holding the district back. They'll then brainstorm action steps that can be taken.
Today's meeting will run from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at Washington Elementary School, 1000 Fayetteville Street in Raleigh.
