It's safe to say that overseeing student assignment in Wake isn't just a job for Asst. Supt. Chuck Dulaney.
As noted in today's article, Dulaney considers his role a "high calling." He believes his efforts in implementing Wake's reassignment policy is helping make the district academically successful.
Dulaney said he often hears from parents who accuse him of caring about numbers and not students. He strongly disagrees with that accusation.
“I care deeply about children,” Dulaney said in the article. “I care about all of them, not just one group and that’s what the [school] board cares about in maintaining healthy schools.”
Dulaney plays a bigger role than some people may realize in the reassignment process.
While it's true that administrators are following board policy, school board chairwoman Rosa Gill said they're given a lot of latitude to draw up the plan.
While there will almost certainly be some changes to the reassignment plan, the vast majority of what's recommended by Dulaney and his staff will be adopted by the board.
