Wake school board delays some student assignments

— The Wake County Board of Education approved delays Tuesday for the multi-year student assignment plan.

Slow bond sales to build three new schools have led to construction delays. As a result, the board announced student assignments to the new Forest Ridge High, Rolesville Middle and Walnut Creek Elementary will be delayed two years.

The delays will cause additional crowding at surrounding schools, officials said. The board plans to explore the use of modular classrooms and reducing the number of year-round applications at some schools to help create space.

In February, the board voted 6-2 in favor of the assignment plan.

    big dew on purchasing the rest of the bonds, that's THEIR problem! donnied you are correct, those in charge of our school system are like a bloated goat, they are the worst in the history of the US!
    On a side note, school never stopped, year rounder's have been going for more than a month. Those of you lucky enough to HAVE a summer enjoy, soon the chaos will be in your homes!
    Want to know more? I can talk all day about the criminality of THIS school system and its administration and school board!!

    Donnied - if you want to know where they're going you can step up and purchase the rest of the bonds. Then the money will be there and they can remove the delay.

    I am so happy that our tax dollars are at work and that these administrators are doing such a bang up job that the students won't know exactly where they will be going to school until after school starts and they finish with all their transfering around.
