2018-2019 Broughton High School Parking Information, August 6, 2018 The following updated information is intended for Broughton High School rising Seniors and Juniors, their parents, and their guardians interested in on-campus parking:
Note - The cost for student parking on campus during the 2018 - 2019 school year has been raised by the WCPSS School Board to $200. Those students who made early payments through the Wake County Public Schools Online School Payments (OSP) portal will need to pay the $30 difference of the increase in the parking fee through the Wake County Public Schools Online School Payments (OSP) portal (https://osp.osmsinc.com/WakeNC/) or via check during the first two weeks of school in order to keep their parking space. Otherwise, they may choose to receive a refund of their prior payment and have their parking space be reassigned to a student on the standby list. Additionally, some students earlier announced parking assignment locations have been changed in order to accommodate the planned consolidation of visitors parking spaces into the southwest corner of the campus.
A total of 150 parking spaces were made available for student parking during the 2018 - 2019 school year. All of these student spaces are located in the parking lots adjacent to Peace Street. Rising seniors and juniors, who completed 25 hours of community service for each completed year of attendance at Broughton High School, had the opportunity to participate in the parking lottery by signing up in the main office between April 30th and May 10th. Over 230 students registered. Parking assignments were made through a random drawing with the priority of assignments having been given to rising seniors. The results of the lottery were posted by the main office last May. All 148 seniors who qualified for a space were assigned a space, as were two juniors. A standby list showing the precedence of the remaining 80+ juniors was also created. Students, who were assigned a parking space, had two opportunities to pay for their spaces through the Wake County Public Schools Online School Payments (OSP) portal. The original deadline was extended in order to provide students, who were offered a space, as much of an opportunity as possible to purchase their space. The final window for their payments closed on July 24, 2018. Those parking spaces, which were not purchased, are being re-distributed to the standby list starting on August 8th, 2018. Once again, spaces should be paid for using the Wake County Public Schools Online School Payments (OSP) portal and the purchase must be completed by August 31, 2018, in order to avoid the loss of parking rights. Students making OSP payments should keep their receipt as proof of payment. Students assigned a space from the standby list will be contacted by phone and also receive a temporary parking tag/card in the mail, good for the first two weeks of the 2018 - 2019 school year, which will serve as their proof of parking assignment. It will also provide a map showing parking space locations on the obverse side of the card. This temporary parking tag /card should be displayed on the dashboard of student vehicles while parking on campus. Parkers will also need to complete the 2018 - 2019 parking safety and parking registration forms found on the school's web site. Once the forms are filled out, they can be turned in and the student's permanent tag will be issued. This process will take place in the school cafeteria, during lunch periods, starting on August 29th. Students must pick up their permanent tags and turn in their completed registration forms by September 7th in order to avoid a temporary or permanent loss of their parking privileges. Rights to use a student parking spot are not transferable.
