The Wake County school board's policy committee will deal today with dual enrollment, family leave and the grading policy.
The dual enrollment policy deals with students who are simultaneously attending other institutions such as colleges for academic enrichment. The board leadership asked the committee to look at the policy.
The discussion on extended family professional leaves revolves around whether to hold spots at schools for families that may temporarily leave Wake. As it now stands, they'd lose their spot and have to apply in the selection process when they return.
The policy committee will pick up the discussion begun by the student achievement committee over whether to go ahead with changes in the grading policy and R&P that would separate classroom behaviors from academic grades. On a somewhat related note, the student achievement committee already backed returning to letter grades for grades 3-5.
