Aside from round two of efforts to fire Wake County Superintendent Tony Tata, you'll also have today the first official effort by the school board's new Democratic majority to modify the student assignment policy.
As noted in this earlier post, the school board's policy committee will go over revisions to the student assignment policy, the school transfer policy and the school capping policy. Expect a lot of discussion on whether staff's proposed wording on adding achievement back into the policy goes far enough or if the more detailed wording suggested by committee chair Jim Martin is preferred..
One of the questions is how quickly the committee will move to adopt any policy revisions to send to the full board. Normally the committee is two majority members and two minority members, but ex-officio members Kevin Hill and Keith Sutton can vote to ensure a favorable policy recommendation.
While the minority members will likely want to slow the pace down, the majority members are under a relatively timeframe as they need to get the policies passed before they can adopt the new assignment plan.
