Last Night’s Outcome

After the six or seven hour school board meeting finally ended last night, here’s where things stood:

* Ron Margiotta elected as the new board chairman, cutting short the term of Kevin Hill   

* Approval of sending a revised student assignment plan to policy committee

* Approval of ending the weekly Wednesday early dismissals after this year

* Approval of stopping money marked for the Forest Ridge High site in northeast Raleigh until a review of alternative sites can take place

* Staff instructed to survey parents to help with decisions about which year-round schools should be converted back to a traditional calendar.

* Approval of appointing the law firm of Ogletree, Deakins, Nash, Smoak and Stewart to audit WCPSS’s legal services.

* Re-scheduled a Dec. 15 board meeting (which had been cancelled by Kevin Hill, the previous board chair)
