COA To Hear Wake Schools Case Tomorrow

Tomorrow the Court of Appeals will hear argument in the highly publicized case arising from the Wake County School Board's plan to convert 22 elementary and middle schools to a mandatory year-round schedule. In a challenge to the plan brought by a parents' group, Judge Howard Manning ruled against the Board, holding that the students couldn't be reassigned to year-round schools without parental permission. This made the year-round decision a voluntary one for parents, and many parents opted out, leaving enrollment at year-round schools below capacity. A story on the appeal is here.
