Snow days, academic achievement and promotion of students will be on the agenda for today’s meeting of the Wake County school board policy committee.

The committee will review the district’s Academic Achievement” policy. The policy covers Wake’s philosophy on achievement, including how “achievement shall be judged in relation to a student's learning capacity and her/his degree of mastery of the course work.”

In a year where school was repeatedly closed and delayed, the committee will also discuss the inclement weather policy. The policy, and related administrative guidelines, cover what the superintendent will do during emergencies.

The third policy to be reviewed is on promotion and intervention. The policy governs how it will be determined whether a student is promoted to the next grade.
