The Wake County school system is asking people to share online with school leaders ideas for inclusion in the new five-year strategic plan.

The question people are being asked is “what do you want most for children in Wake County as a result of their experience in WCPSS?”More than 20 suggestions have already been floated on the “ Envision Wake Schools” website.

For instance, one person suggests that Wake implement Dave Ramsey’s Foundations in Personal Finance high school curriculum.

Another person said that while adding foreign language immersion programs to two schools is “nice, but a district-wide foreign language program would be better.”

Other ideas are more general.

“Create a level playing ground for each school in Wake County that offers equal access to learning and resources and they will be equally desirable to attend,” one person suggests.

Wake is taking ideas until mid-August.
