The Wake County school board’s facilities committee will discuss Wednesday the number of new schools needed for the next building program and the latest student enrollment projections.
The meeting agenda includes facilities staff presenting a map showing the target areas for new schools and which ones have priority to be built first. Just as with the earlier presentation on renovation needs, the school board will likely have to pare down how many new schools are included in the next building program.
As part of the discussion, staff will present updated enrollment projections. They’ll reflect how charter schools, private schools and home schools have combined to grow at a rate greater than or equal to the school system the past few years.
Other topics include:
▪ Review the projects identified in the district’s Space Needs Analysis and Prioritization (SNAP) process. Some projects could be included in the next building program.
▪ Review of the analyses for potential renovations for West Millbrook Middle, North Ridge Elementary and York Elementary. They’re also potentially in line for the next building program.
