Today is the day when the new multi-year Wake County student assignment plan could begin taking shape.

At today’s student assignment seminar, the board and staff will discuss the scope of the new plan and the plan’s four pillars: stability, proximity, operational efficiency and student achievement. Board members will provide input and discuss next steps.

The first two seminars have been for staff to lay out the variables in drawing up a new plan. School board members have repeatedly said that no official action will take place at the work session. But staff will want some direction on how to put the draft plan together.
