Voting Results!

Here is a link to the WRAL website page where you can access videos of the entire school board meeting today: http://www.wral.com/news/education/story/7620684/ From what I understand, the “final” vote to focus on more parental choices and on neighborhood schools was 5 – 4 in favor of the change.

The school board also decided to have six (for traditional schools) early-release days for teacher “professional development” time. They plan to use Friday afternoons for that in the upcoming year. I think schools will dismiss two and one-half hours earlier on those days. This is not the same thing as the PLT days that we had every Wednesday this year.

Other items of discussion included Broughton’s IB status, “curriculum audit” progress, and budget items.
