More to come later, but Wake County school staff proposed today a timeline that would have the school board adopt the 2013-14 assignment plan on Dec. 11.
This draft timeline would have the plan being presented Nov. 13 with public hearings in November and early December. The board would hold work sessions Dec. 4 and Dec. 11 with the vote that day.
The board will vote on the timeline Oct. 30. If the plan is adopted Dec. 11, the soft transition would immediately go into effect Dec. 12 with new families going to their base school instead of participating in the choice plan.
Along the way, you had board members arguing about scrapping the choice plan and what using the 11-12 maps mean. It was stressed that there would be few reassignments for next year and that all existing students can grandfather at their current school, including those who participated in the choice plan.
