Tonight's tornado-plagued school board meeting is finally done.
The board was meeting in closed session when the tornado warning was announced. The board members and other people still at Wake Forest Road relocated to the interior of the building — the first-floor offices of Growth and Planning.
Amid a crowd of parents and kids who had come for Spotlight on Students, the board reconvened the meeting. The board then passed the resolution calling on the state to let them have less than 180 days of school so that employees can use their furlough time.
