Wake County school board chairman Ron Margiotta wants to bring back the community relations committee.
At Margiotta's request, the resolution restoring the committee was added to today's board agenda. It comes after the board agreed on Jan. 5 to his request to create the economically disadvantaged student performance task force and the student assignment committee.
Margiotta said he thought the committee, which was disbanded not too long ago, did a valuable job helping the district communicate with the public. It was used a lot during the 2006 bond referendum.
Margiotta said one of the problems with the old CRC committee was that the community members didn't come regularly. As a result, he said he wants the committee to now meet quarterly instead of monthly.
The committee works directly with Michael Evans, chief of communications.
The board committee members would be appointed later. The public could apply to join the committee.
The board voted to reinstate the committee.
