The Wake County school board has canceled Thursdays student assignment work session.
School board chairwoman Christine Kushner said the meeting was canceled out of respect for board member Susan Evans, who will be attending her mothers funeral on Thursday. Evans wasnt at Tuesdays board meeting because of her mothers death.
Kushner said she hopes to reschedule the work session to next Thursday, May 1.
The first two work session/seminars have been primarily focused on staff explaining the variables in the assignment process. With the third meeting, staff will want more direction from the board on how to implement the variables in crafting the new multi-year, comprehensive assignment plan.
