Wake County commissioners and school board members will take another stab today at developing an agreement on how both boards can work together on school construction.

The full boards met Friday and, as noted in this article by Martha Quillin, seemed to be more civil than in the recent past about how they could work together. With no deal reached, the leaders of both boards agreed to meet with top administrators today to finalize the details of the interlocal agreement.

Today’s meeting would typically not be open to the public because less than a majority of each board would attend. But attendees at Friday’s joint meeting asked for the leadership meeting to be open to the public.

The meeting is scheduled to run from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the school board’s conference room, 5625 Dillard Drive in Cary.
