Here's a quick recap of today's Wake County school board work session.
School board members and administrators are concerned that Gov. Pat McCrory's budget proposal would cut about $12 million for teacher assistant positions in Wake. That would cost 400 positions so Wake will lobby for the funding to be included in the final state budget.
McCrory's budget would eliminate TA funding in second- and third-grades.
Not surprisingly, a majority of board members said they're opposed to S325, the school board election bill. The official resolution in support of keeping the districts adopted in 2011 will come April 23.
It also looks like the school board will change the name of West Apex High to incorporate both Apex and Friendship in the name. This comes after Apex town leaders say they're willing to compromise despite having passed a resolution last month in favor of the West Apex name.
