Parents will be watching Tuesday to see if the Wake County school board makes any changes to the 2016-17 student assignment plan.

The only item on the work session agenda is the discussion of the assignment plan. It’s scheduled for a one-hour discussion.

Among the things to watch are whether any changes are made to the Pleasant Grove Elementary and Pine Hollow Middle assignments. Assignments to those two schools drew the majority of speakers at this month’s student assignment public hearing.

Parents will see if the board makes any base or calendar-option changes at those or any other schools.

It’s unlikely the board will add any new areas to the plan as the official vote is scheduled for the Dec. 1 meeting.

Last year, the board only made one change to the plan after it was presented by staff.

The regular meeting agenda looks to be fairly short. Items include:

▪ Adoption of final school improvement plans for 20 schools deemed low performing by the state;

▪ Adoption of 2015-16 employee salary schedules.
