The Wake County school board will deal with a variety of items at today's meeting, including whether to provide transportation to all rising sixth- and ninth-graders going to their feeder schools this fall.
During the work session, staff will give an update on how many of the preassigned students still don't have transportation and what can be done to accommodate them. The vote on the issue, requested by board member Jim Martin, will come at the regular meeting.
In response to board member Debra Goldman's complaints that Martin was being given more consideration than her, the board will also deal with her concerns about increasing board and district transparency.
During the last meeting, Goldman had introduced what's now morphed into a policy this document calling for making the district more transparent. When school board chairman Kevin Hill said he'd put Martin's motion to provide transportation for all students on today's agenda, Goldman demanded to know when her item would be heard.
They'll discuss it during the work session and have first reading during the regular meeting on a newly created transparency of board and district operations policy.
The new transparency policy is also occurring as Goldman heads into a July runoff for the Republican nomination for state auditor.
Among the other items up today are approving putting the Wake Young Men's Leadership Academy on the modular campus next to East Millbrook Middle School and voting on the school resource officer contracts with Cary and Raleigh.
