I'll post in more detail later, but here's a quick rundown of today's school board meeting.
The school board voted to lay off eight employees who help oversee the construction program. It's the first of what's expected to be several layoffs in that area.
Staff recommended delaying a decision on East Wake High's small schools until December 2010 or January 2011 to allow audits to be conducted. No decision was made by the board.
The board continued to debate whether to apply for a federal grant that would allow it to expand the number of high-poverty schools that could offer merit pay. Staff warned it could lead to funding and equity issues.
