Wake Schools to unveil new assignment plan
RALEIGH, N.C. (WTVD) -- The Wake County Board of Education will present its new assignment proposal for the 2013-14 school year to the school board Tuesday.
The presentation is scheduled as an information item during the board's regularly scheduled meeting, which begins at 5:30 p.m. The public is encouraged to attend the meeting at WCPSS Central Services on Dillard Drive in Cary.
The new proposal comes in response to a June directive from the board of education because a choice-based plan in use for the first time this year got mixed reviews from parents. The new plan will include address-based school assignments that offer more diversity.
After Tuesday's meeting, the Board of Education will spend the next several weeks receiving public comments and reviewing the proposal. The board is scheduled to adopt a final plan in late October.
Members of the public may view the staff presentation and other materials on the WCPSS website.
