Don't look for the word "waitlist" to be included in the revised version of the Wake County school system's student transfer policy.
During today's work session, board members agreed to modify wording that says requests may be denied for "application for transfers to schools if classes are full and a waitlist remains in place for seats at that school."
They'll replace the waitlist reference to say that transfers may be denied if there is no capacity at the school or at that grade level.
School board members Jim Martin and Susan Evans said they were concerned that putting in the waitlist reference would discourage people from seeking transfers.
The transfer policy was unanimously approved tonight on second and final reading.
