State School Board To Consider Wagstaff Status

Posted Updated

DURHAM, N.C. — Jackie Wagstaff's future as a member of the Durham school board may become a bit clearer this week.

In November, Wagstaff was convicted of two misdemeanors. She admitted to altering city documents. In December, school board members voted to send the matter to the state Board of Education.

The state school board is expected to take up the issue during its regular meeting this week. Board members could order the local board to conduct an investigation into Wagstaff's conduct.

If an investigation is ordered, it would be followed by a public hearing and a vote on whether Wagstaff should keep her school board seat.
