Today's meeting between Wake County Schools Superintendent Tony Tata and the Rev. William Barber, president of the state NAACP, could be hot in more ways than one.
Tentatively, the school system plans to hold the 10 a.m. private meeting in the school board conference room. The room's air-conditioning unit is partially down and the school system hadn't been planning to repair it because the relocation of Central Office to Cary is slated for August.
Keep this mind for Tuesday's work session, where it could get uncomfortable in the board conference room.
Today's topics are expected to include the new student assignment plan, minority teacher and principal recruitment and community outreach.
Wake says that the AC for the board conference room has been fixed and that they're still making individual maintenance repairs at Wake Forest Road before the move.
The NAACP has scheduled a noon press conference in front of Central Office to talk about the meeting.
