The school board has finalized the timeline for the reassignment process.
The board announced today that they'll hold public hearings on Jan. 5 at Apex High, Jan. 8 at Southeast Raleigh High, Jan. 12 at Millbrook High, Jan. 14 at Fuquay-Varina High and Jan. 15 at East Wake High.
Those meetings will run from 6:30 to 9 p.m.
As you can see, none of the board hearings are in northwest Raleigh for the Leesville folks.
Asst. Supt. Chuck Dulaney stresed that Monday's meeting was not a CEM meeting. That led to one parent asking why then no official meeting was held in northwest Raleigh.
Dulaney told board members today it was hard finding available dates in December for high school auditoriums.
Unlike the December community engagement meetings, the January meetings are for the public to speak directly to board members about the official plan. The CEM meetings are meant to provide staff feedback on the draft plan.
The CEM meetings will be held Thursday at Knightdale High, Dec. 1 at Cary High, Dec. 3 at Wake Forest-Rolesville High, Dec. 4 at Holly Springs High and Dec. 8 at Broughton High. They're from 6:30 to 9 p.m.
Unlike the board hearings which people can sign up online to speak at, you'll have to sign up directly at the CEM meetings. They'll begin signing up people at the CEM meetings 30 minutes ahead of time.
Parents can comment at the meetings or online through Dec. 10. More than 1,000 online comments have been received so far.
Dulaney said they're already considering changes based on the comments.
After the CEM meetings, the board will get the revised plan on Dec. 16. Then the board will hold those five January meetings.
A work session will be held Jan. 22. The final vote is scheduled for Jan. 3.
