School funding and the long-proposed career technical/vocational high school are on the agenda for today's joint meeting of the Wake County school board and county commissioners.
Superintendent Tony Tata and Wake Tech Community College President Stephen Scott will talk about a potential career and technical education high school partnership. The idea of beefing up the vocational programs for high school students in Wake has been talked about for a long time.
After getting an update on the county's economic situation, both boards will discuss Tata's budget proposal. It's not expected that Tata's proposed $8.8 million increase from the county will get a warm reception from the commissioners.
