More to come later, but a few more details are emerging about Wake County's new draft student assignment plan.
An outline of the plan presented to board members shows that attendance lines were drawn for the 2013-14 school year so that "base assignments will be made at one of their proximate schools to the extent possible."
Staff says that when drawing up attendance lines they took into account student achievement to make schools representative of the students now attending. Schools that are 10 percentage points below the district's average performance composite would get additional resources.
The plan would grandfather all current students until they complete the grade span of their current school. They'd keep their bus service unless they're reassigned to a newly opening school, where they could still choose to grandfather but have to provide their own transportation.
There's also countywide open enrollment period, after the magnet application period, where families could apply to attend any school in the district that has space. Transportation would be provided to only some choices.
