The WakeEd blog is devoted to discussing and answering questions about the major issues facing the Wake County school system. How will the new student assignment plan balance diversity, stability, proximity and stability? How will Jim Merrill replace Tony Tata as the new superintendent of the state's largest district? How will voters react to a $810 million school construction bond referendum on Oct. 8 ballot? How will this fall's school board elections impact the future of the district?

WakeEd is maintained by The News & Observer's Wake schools reporter, T. Keung Hui. While Keung posts information and analysis on the issues, keep us posted on your suggestions, questions, tips and what you're doing to cope with the changes in Wake's schools.

Here's the notice on Wake's website:

Round 2 Choice Web Application Temporarily Unavailable

The Round 2 Choice Application for 2012-13 student assignment is currently unavailable due to an upcoming update that will finalize the placement of magnet and proximity waitlists in order to display more accurate seat availability for schools. School system staff plan to have the application updated and reactivated by Tuesday, March 27.

Parents that have already logged on to the application and made school selections for their children will not be affected by this update. They may change or delete without risk any choice they have made during Choice Round 2 before its close on April 9.

Also, parents may still log in to check their current magnet placement status. They will be able to view the results of the waitlist placements for proximity seats at the end of day on Monday.
