The Wake County school board is now putting the fate of a proposed career and technical education high school in the hands of the county commissioner.
After meeting in closed session tonight, the school board amended the agenda to pass a resolution calling on the commissioners to acquire, renovate and outfit the former Coca-Cola Bottling site on 2200 South Wilmington St. in Raleigh to make it a CTE high school.
The resolution says the school board wants the new school ready in August 2014. It would add 700 seats for high school students and 1,000 seats for Wake Technical Community College, which would be the school district's partner for the school.
The opening of the school has stalled over how to come up with the money for the project. At one point the idea was to lease the property.
