WAKE COUNTY, N.C. — Hundreds of students have been dropped from Wake County's school reassignment plan.
After listening to ideas and comments from parents at a public hearing last month, the board decided to remove 670 students from the plan. The moves dropped from the plan include: Cary High to Athens Drive High East Wake High to Garner High Some from Wakefield High to Wake Forest-Rolesville High Some from Broughton High to Leesville Road High Leesville High to Sanderson High Apex Middle to Dillard Drive Middle Some from Daniels Middle to Leesville Road Middle Davis Drive Middle to East Cary Middle East Millbrook Middle to Carroll Middle Holly Springs Elementary to Lincoln Heights Elementary Willow Springs Elementary to Ballentine Elementary Stough Elementary to Leesville Road
Board members also decided to move 260 students to different schools, which requires another public hearing. Those moves include: Garner High students going to Middle Creek High instead of Athens Drive High Some Martin Middle students going to Leesville Road Middle instead of Daniels Apex Elementary students going to Swift Creek Elementary instead of Dillard Drive Lead Mine Elementary students going to Brassfield Elementary instead of Pleasant Union
That hearing will take place during the board's next meeting on March 19. It starts at 6:30 p.m. at the school administration building.
A final vote is expected following the hearing.
