Today marks the last business day in awhile that Wake County will have an assistant superintendent for growth and planning.
The dire budget means there are no plans to fill Asst. Supt. Chuck Dulaney's position after his retirement becomes effective Monday. Instead, Growth and Planning will be realigned.
Laura Evans, the most senior of the senior directors in Growth and Planning, will largely take over Dulaney's duties without getting the job title.
Evans will work with the school board's new student assignment committee to help review changes for the 2010-11 school year and for the long-term development of community assignment zones.
Dulaney got a going-away gift at last week's school board meeting.
Diana Bader and Anne Sherron, members of the soon-to-be former Growth and Planning student assignment advisory committee, presented Dulaney a certificate of achievement from the N.C. PTA Council "in recognition of his dedicated service to the welfare and education of children and youth" in Wake County.
