Families around Wake County will be trying to find out today if they’re impacted by the draft 2015-16 student assignment plan that will be presented to the school board.

School administrators will present at 4 p.m. “Year One of the School Enrollment Proposal, Draft One.” The plan will detail how Wake County school administrators will recommend filling three new schools – Apex Friendship High in Apex, Abbotts Creek Elementary in North Raleigh and Scotts Ridge Elementary in Apex.

The plan is also expected to include how staff will recommend expanding the base for Richland Creek Elementary School in Wake Forest now that the school will be in its permanent building instead of its modular campus.

Parents will also be looking to see what other changes will be recommended.

You can watch the meeting online at the school district’s YouTube page.
