It's official now that no Wake County school board work session has been scheduled yet to review the new student assignment plan.
The school system has posted its schedule for next week with no work session listed. School board chairman Ron Margiotta said it would be "presumptuous" for him to schedule the work session because he'll be off the board as of Tuesday.
School board member Kevin Hill had requested that Margiotta schedule a Wednesday, Dec. 7, work session. The new majority could have gotten around Margiotta if one of the other current board members had joined Hill in making a request.
The earliest the new board could schedule a work session would be for Thursday to comply with the requirement of 48-hours advance notice. The board could try to use the Dec. 10 retreat but that would mean bypassing Superintendent Tony Tata's agenda of discussing the strategic plan.
