RALEIGH, N.C. — The Wake County student reassignment plan was in the hands of the school board Tuesday night.
The staff reviewed
which shifts more than 5,000 students to help fill three new schools and ease overcrowding next fall.
Parents have already weighed in on the hefty proposal, which was released to most of those involved last November.
However, some Cary parents got notice two weeks ago and have asked the board to take those students out of the plan.
"We feel like the board will be open to our concerns and listen to them with an open mind. That's all we can ask for at this time," parent Chris Castor said.
The board will discuss the plan at an upcoming work session. Parents get one last chance to speak out in a public hearing scheduled for Feb. 20.
The board hopes to vote on the proposal in March.
