Parents at Daniels and Leesville Road middle schools will get a second crack today at persuading the school board to reverse recent votes.
Today's board agenda includes a vote on converting Leesville to a year-round calendar and another on removing the magnet program at Daniels. Parents will be able to have their say during the public comment portion at 4 p.m.
As noted previously, a revote was likely.
The board had agreed to convert Leesville and demagnetize Daneils at an Oct. 7 work session. But questions had been raised whether both votes were official.
After all, prior votes on demagnetization and conversion were done during regular board meetings.
Those won't be the only parts of the votes.
During the same vote on demagnetizing Daniels, the board will also revote on confirming the decisions to add magnet programs to Brentwood and Smith elementary schools.
Also as part of the Leesvile vote, the board will vote on reconfirming the decisions to put Baucom and Green Hope elementary schools on a traditional calendar.
The regular board meeting will begin at 3 p.m. at 3600 Wake Forest Road, Raleigh.
Ron Margiotta unsuccessfully asked his fellow board members to pull the items for Leesville and Daniels off the agenda. Both of his motions to remove the items died from a lack of a second. He had argued they should be pulled to allow more time for public comment before a final decision is made.
