Wake County officials are drafting new plans to reassign some students next school year.
School reassignment has been one of the most contentious topics in the Wake County school system. Officials didn't make any assignment changes last year for the current school year because only one new school opened up.
But 17 new schools are slated to open in the next few years to keep pace with the fast-growing county.
“Twenty-two babies are born every day in Wake County hospitals,” said school board member Christine Kushner. “That’s a kindergarten class born every day.”
