How much change will take place at today's Wake County school board meeting as issues such as bell schedules, student assignment and the Panther Creek High lease deal are discussed?
Superintendent Tony Tata told reporters on Friday that changes are likely to be made to some schools in the bell schedule proposal based on the feedback from the online survey. How much change comes from staff and from individual board members remains to be seen.
The board is setting aside the first 90 minutes of the work session agenda that starts at 3 p.m. on the bell schedule.
The board is then slated to spend 30 minutes on the new common core math curriculum. Look for discussion on the revised version of the math placement policy tabled at the Feb. 7 meeting.
The board will then get an update on the student assignment plan. With the first round ending Friday, we'll see if the board directs staff to make any changes for this fall. The new board members all indicated Feb. 7 they're prepared to propose changes.
After a quick discussion of the planning assumptions for the next school construction program, the board will discuss reconsidering the lease of an office building for Panther Creek High's ninth-grade center.
The Panther Creek lease is the only action item on the special called meeting agenda set to start at 6:30 p.m.
