The Student Assignment Committee will meet on Tuesday, Sept. 28 to continue its work on the development of a new attendance zone model for the school system.
At its last meeting on Aug. 31, members of the committee selected the high school attendance zone model as a basis for developing a new community-based school assignment plan and directed staff to bring additional information on it to the next meeting.
During the meeting on Tuesday, committee members will discuss feedback on the high school attendance zone model received from the WCPSS website and from citizen advisors. In addition, committee members will also review achievement and magnet data and discuss information related to school funding, school choice opportunities and the community engagement process.
Board Chairman Ron Margiotta said he is looking forward to the committee continuing its work on the proposed model.
“The committee’s work is far from being finished,” he said. “The selection of the high school attendance zone model simply provides a starting point for review, analysis and public comment. It is still very early in the process, and changes will be made based on feedback and discussion.”
The meeting will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Board Conference Room located in the WCPSS Administration Building at 3600 Wake Forest Road in Raleigh.
