WCPSS--Board of Education
CALL TO ORDER - 12 P.M.
APPROVAL OF MEETING AGENDA
1. DISCUSSION OF POTENTIAL INEQUITIES CREATED BY REMOVAL OF
END OF DAY ACTIVITY BUS RUNS AND CONSIDERATION OF
REINSTATEMENT To meet funding reductions and cost increases, the 2010-2011 Wake County Public School System (WCPSS) Adopted Budget includes budget reductions in many areas. One such reduction was the elimination of after-school activity buses run by the Transportation Department. This service elimination creates potential inequities in after school educational opportunities available to all students. Board discussion to take place for possible consideration of reinstatement of these services. If the Board desires to reinstate these services, funding could be used from the $27.7 million Education Jobs Bill Grant Funding WCPSS will receive. Funding from this Federal Grant can be used for school based personnel salary and benefits cots, including after school activity bus drivers, and can be used for allowed expenditures incurred after the enactment date of August 10, 2010. Fiscal Implications: $185,000 of the Federal Education Jobs Funding can be allocated to re-instatement of the after-school activity bus runs that were eliminated. This Federal Grant is one time funding that will not recur. Reinstatement of after-school activity buses would not be sustained beyond 2010-11 unless other funding sources are identified. Recommendation for Action: Board discussion leading to possible action.
ADJOURNMENTMeetings will be held in the Administration Building, 3600 Wake Forest Road, Raleigh, NC unless otherwise indicated.
