Rescinding the year-round conversions is now officially on the school board's table.
School board members asked Chuck Dulaney, assistant superintendent for growth and planning, today to come up with a scenario for the next building program that would reverse some of the conversions. He's expected to report back next month with schools that could be switched back to a traditional calendar.
The thing to keep mind is that the board is looking at reversing a few conversions, not all 22.

Lori Millberg talked about reversing one or two schools. Beverley Clark talked about three or four schools.
It's looking like the converted schools in Apex and Knightdale have a better chance of being reversed. Millberg said they may have underestimated how heavily concentrating the conversions could have led to empty seats in those areas.
Board members cited the slowdown in growth with justifying the need to reconsider the conversions. They repeatedly insisted that the conversions were not a failure.
