Some Wake County year-round application students might want to check if they’re facing a new school next year.
As noted in today’s article, school administrators are recommending dropping the second year-round choice for some traditional-calendar elementary schools as part of the draft 2015-16 student assignment proposal. The elimination of these choices is supposed to help make bus service more efficient next year.
If implemented, it would affect 117 year-round application students. These students would get the remaining year-round choice.
Some of the changes shouldn’t be surprising. Wake has to find a new home for 86 year-round application students who were placed at Wakefield Elementary School, which is converting back to the traditional calendar. But there are still 31 other year-round students who may not have been anticipating a change.
To see if you’re potentially affected, click here for the assignment proposal and go to pages 47-49. If you accept the new year-round school, you’ll get bus service if you are eligible. If you choose to remain at the eliminated choice, you will lose bus service.
