A swearing-in ceremony, the jumpstarting of a new middle school in northwest Raleigh and more criticism of the Wake County Commissioners is likely in store at today's Wake County school board meeting.
The school board will vote on approving the N.C. School Boards Association's 2013-14 legislative agenda and on approving the NCSBA resolution opposing allowing counties to take over ownership of school facilities.
During the discussion at the work session and the vote in the regular meeting, you'll probably hear more complaints about the Wake commissioners having requested the state legislative changes.
Still no official word yet on who the school board will hire as the lobbyist to fight the changes in the General Assembly.
The board will also vote on staff's recommendation to allocate design money to M-8, the middle school that would be built near Leesville Church and Strickland roads. This would speed up the school's opening, provided a bond issue is passed this fall.
There will also be the swearing-in ceremony and reception for new board member Tom Benton.
