It's looking more likely that the school board will revote on the recent decisions affecting Daniels and Leesville Road middle schools.
As noted in today's article, Rosa Gill, chairwoman of the school board, said she's reviewing the recent votes and could ask on Nov. 3 for new votes. In the case of Daniels. there's a decent chance that the board could now decide to keep the school's magnet program.
Gill said she wants to see how the recent votes compare with prior ones. The board had voted in regular meetings and not work sessions to make final decisions before on demagnetization and calendar conversion.
You can refresh you memory by looking at the meeting minutes.
On Aug. 7, 2007, the board voted on demagnetizing Lincoln Heights, Olds, Root and Wake Forest elementary schools.
Those votes occurred at regular meetings after public comment. They had also been preceded by preliminary votes in work sessions so it didn't surprise anyone.
But there wasn't as much warning when the board voted in the Oct. 7 work session to demagnetize Daniels and to convert Leesville.
When parents from Daniels came to Tuesday's board meeting, Gill said the demagnetization decision was final. This angered parents who had thought they could make their case before a final vote took place during a regular meeting.
After the meeting, board member Ron Margiotta questioned the validity of the work session vote in an e-mail message to Gill. With Margiotta now saying he supports keeping the magnet program at Daniels, things could change.
