Here's a running update on some of the votes from tonight's Wake County school board meeting.
The board voted 7-2 to pay $1.7 million over the next five years to install GPS units on all the school buses. Only board members Susan Evans and Christine Kushner voted no.
The board unanimously approved extending the waiting lists for the school choice student assignment plan from June 29 to July 18. The board also unanimously voted to make the new career technical and education high school a full-day standalone model.
Over the objections of some board members, the board will go into closed session first to discuss whether to join the litigation against the N.C. Virtual Academy. Board member Debra Goldman was the most vocal critic, arguing they should have the discussion in open session to be transparent.
