This edition of WCPSS (Wake County Public School System) updates includes an update on the controversial MVP Math program, future district enrollment estimates drop again and a question, are the board’s elite magnet schools segregating the district?
#1 – WCPSS won’t turn over documents related to MVP math
According to parents still fighting against the use of controversial MVP Math, requests for copies of the surveys related to the curriculum are not being turned over.
Blain Dillard, the parent who was sued by MVP Math, believes that the district his hiding behind an outside contractor to keep those surveys from coming out.
Quick reminder: The board changed the district policy on records requests last year.
A “special service charge” is applied if staff spend eight or more hours on fulfilling a request. That “special service charge” is made up of a $15 per hour charge for clerical time and $25 per hour for supervisory time.
In addition, the board proposed altering how student records are defined. While this proposal has not been instituted yet, note that this change would exclude documents created and maintained by outside vendors from review by parents and the public:
#2 – WCPSS enrollment projections drop
When it comes to enrollment projections, will the school board be turning our kids into reassignment yo-yo’s? Board member Roxie Cash seems to think so.
#3 – Are the WCPSS board’s magnet schools segregating the district?
Going by this board’s own past statements and judging by the reaction below, the answer to that question is Yes.
