Wake County won’t change eight schools to year-round schedule

The Wake County school system is abandoning a proposal to convert eight traditional-calendar elementary schools to a year-round schedule for the 2017-18 school year after parents voiced opposition in a survey. Wake will look for other ways to help those high-poverty schools. But the school board voted Tuesday on converting Walnut Creek Elementary to a year-round schedule for the 2016-17 school year because parents there have supported the change.
