Wake County Schools officials reported that had got a great deal of feedback from parents about this year's reassignment proposal by the time the public comment period ended Tuesday.

More than 2,000 comments were filed—1,341 through the system's Web site, 668 via e-mails, and 43 phone calls. A recommendation to the Wake County School Board is expected next Tuesday, with a final vote due in February.

Nearly 11,000 students could change schools for the 2007-2008 school year.
