Wake school board approves 2013 enrollment caps
Posted April 10, 2013
Raleigh, N.C. — The Wake County Board of Education approved a new school plan Tuesday that eliminates enrollment caps at some schools and adds them to others.
The plan takes effect in the next school year.
Capping is used to manage overcrowding and is implemented when schools reach capacity, officials said.
Under the proposal, enrollment caps will be removed at Heritage Middle School and Briarcliff, Conn, Davis Drive, Green Hope and Wildwood Forest elementary schools.
Ten schools have been added to the capping list. They are: Farmington Woods, Fuller, Hilburn Drive, Holly Grove, Joyner and Walnut Creek elementary schools, and Apex, Garner, Heritage and Holly Springs high schools.
Seven elementary schools will maintain their capping status in the coming year. They are: Brooks, Cedar Fork, Hunter, Lacy, Mills Park, Underwood and Wiley.
