The Wake Education Partnership is also raising the specter of reassignment caused by the school board's vote to end mandatory year-round assignments.
In this week's issue of In Context, the partnership's e-newsletter, the group points to the reassignment of students out of year-round schools if they're converted to a traditional calendar for 2010-11.
The newsletter says some students would be reassigned because there's no longer room for them under the lower capacity in a traditional calendar. Others would be the year-round application students who'd want to stay in the program after conversion.
The newsletter raises the possibility of the students being reassigned without public hearings, noting that the board members didn't discuss holding them.
The newsletter also says it will be too late to add mobile classrooms for next year because of permit requirements and other constraints.
In addition to the reassignment issues, the newsletter warns that principals will have much less time now to know how many teachers to hire for next school year.
