This is not an April Fool's Joke.
Forest Pines Elementary School will not be on an enrollment cap for the 2009-10 school year even though that's what staff had recommended last week. It seems they made a mistake.
Asst. Supt. Chuck Dulaney told school board members on Tuesday that he had used the wrong cap number for Forest Pines in basing his recommendation.
While conditions would still be crowded this fall, Dulaney told the board yesterday that Forest Pines could operate without a cap.
Enrollment was capped at Forest Pines for this school year. This meant people who moved into the school's attendance area after May 1 were sent to Wake Forest Elementary.
The cap is only good for one year at a time so the board has to vote if it's extended for additional years.
But the board did agree Tuesday to leave in place the cap at Cedar Fork Elementary. Newcomers will be sent to either Reedy Creek or Weatherstone elementary schools.
