I am writing to inform you of a possible opportunity for our school beginning in the 2017-18 school year – one that I believe will benefit our students greatly.
Last night, the Wake County Public School System Board of Education voted to take an initial step regarding more flexibility in how we operate by submitting an application to the state Board of Education.
If our application is approved by the state Board of Education, our school will be given the remainder of this school year to plan for implementation to begin in the 2017-18 school year.
This shows great promise for improving how our students learn. While our areas of flexibility are focused on funding and scheduling options, we are not required to make any significant changes.
Your input is invaluable as we begin to plan for next school year. We will soon be reaching out to you with opportunities to have a voice in this process. In fact, upon learning about the Board of Education’s intended vote, Carroll’s Principal Advisory Council started to dig into this work yesterday afternoon.
This outreach might include a survey, and it will certainly include informational sessions for you to attend, ask questions, and offer suggestions.
We are excited about the possibilities for exercising flexibility in how we operate our school and how we serve you and your child. We will be contacting you once state approval is granted to let you know how you can be a part of this exciting opportunity.
