Quite a Crowd!

Wow! It was standing room only tonight as parents and other concerned citizens gathered in the Leesville Rd. High School auditorium to discuss Wake County's decision to mandate a year-round schedule for Leesville Rd. Middle School. Chuck Dulaney and Patti Head were there, and Mr. Dulaney shared a short power point presentation detailing the plan. That was followed by over an hour's worth of 3-minute talks by at least 35 attendees. The majority of the speakers opposed the conversion, but there was definitely a vocal group who favored the idea. Many questions were posed, some of which were answered by Mr. Dulaney or by two year-round school principals he had brought to the meeting.

I will try to give you more advance notice on other meetings that will be occurring. I do know that the following dates and locations have been announced for feedback on the WCPSS 2009-2012 draft reassignment proposal (posted at
