— Parents have another chance tonight to speak about the Wake County Board of Education’s student reassignment plan.

A public hearing will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. Thursday night at Middle Creek High School in Apex.

More than 70 people have signed up to speak. In order to accommodate the large number, the Board of Education will divide into two panels and use both the school's auditorium and its gymnasium to hear citizen's comments.

Citizens who have not pre-registered may sign up between 6 and 6:55 p.m. at the door. Following opening comments from the board chair, speakers will be directed to the appropriate location for the hearings.

The school board has collected thousands of public comments about the issue. WRAL.com requested copies of the letters and has posted many of them HERE.
