Redistricting won't be the only item on today's Wake County school board agenda.
During the work session that starts at 2 p.m., the board will have more discussions on the proposed revisions to the code of student conduct. It could include some of the ideas suggested at this month's ED task force meeting.
The board will also discuss at the work session how they'll handle the elimination of more than 160 clerical and secretarial positions. Most of the cuts will be at individual schools. The vote on the reduction in force, or RIF, will take place during the regular meeting that starts at 4:30 p.m.
The RIF vote comes before a presentation of this month's employee excellence awards. It could be awkward if any of the award winners are among those getting RIF notices.
Based on past practice, they'll have an open session vote on going ahead with the RIF process. After closed session, they'll come out with the list of names of people who will get the layoff notices.
Other work session topics will include discussion of transfers due to course of study and information on teachers including EVAAS status, National Board Certification, Advanced Degrees, and teacher survey data from the Working Conditions Survey and the Professional Learning Team Survey.
