You could hear a lot more tonight from those who aren't officially being reassigned in the new Wake County student assignment plan.
As of early Friday afternoon, 28 people had signed up to speak at tonight's public hearing at Davis Drive Middle School in Cary. Twenty-one of the speakers are from western and southwestern Wake, none of whose students are among the 1,479 officially being reassigned in the plan.
This could mean, as was the case last week, that many of the people tonight are those who are affected by changing the feeders from the choice plan back to the 2011 base assignments or whose calendar options have been revised.
The 1,479 students are only those in the base nodes whose assignments from 2011-12 would be different in 2013-14. A hearing was added in Cary in case people in other areas of the county wanted to give feedback.
