Look for more questions today from Wake County Commissioners on the school system's $30 million fund balance.
During today's meeting, school staff will present the district's latest comprehensive annual financial report. That's the document that shows that the school system's undesignated fund balance, aka rainy-day fund, has grown faster than expected.
At the last joint meeting, Commissioner Paul Coble warned the school board against changing policy to be able to keep more of the fund balance without turning the excess to the county.
Also during the meeting, the commissioners will have the second and final reading on purchasing a site in northeast Raleigh near River Bend Elementary School for a new middle school.
The commissioners will also have the first reading on the school board's revised deal to purchase the former YWCA building near downtown Raleigh. Expect questions on why they should approve this proposal after having rejected the last agreement.
