School transportation, services for academically gifted children and revisions to the code of ethics policy are among the issues the Wake County school board will deal with today.
During the work session, school transportation staff will give an update on how things are less than a week before traditional-calendar schools open. They’ll also present an update on transportation services for special-education students.
Also during the work session, staff will present how Wake will respond to a critical audit of how services are provided to academically and intellectually gifted children. One of the issues raised during the Aug. 6 work session is whether school autonomy needs to be reduced to standardize AIG services.
During the regular meeting, the board is scheduled to have the first reading on putting sanctions into the code of ethics for board members. The policy includes some revisions designed to try to allay concerns of some board members.
