Hello! Here is today’s BOE news.

BOE updated on student assignment plans

Assignment plan simulation

Please go online and participate in the blue student assignment plan simulation between now and Mon., June 20. Your input will help WCPSS fine-tune its recommendations to the BOE on Tues., June 21.

Martin announces candidacy

Jim Martin, an N.C. State University chemistry professor, has announced his intentions to run for the BOE seat in District 5, currently occupied by Dr. Anne McLaurin, according to the N&O.

The GOP’s education budget ‘fantasy’

This op-ed piece from the Herald-Sun illustrates how the GOP’s budget does not support public education as advertised.

As noted in this editorial in today’s N&O (several LTEs on this topic, too ~ see below), Gov. Bev Perdue vetoed the budget on Sunday, but a veto override vote could take place as soon as tomorrow, June 15. Please let the five Democrats who voted with the GOP in favor of this budget know that it’s the wrong thing to do for the children of North Carolina. Here are their email addresses again: Tim.Spear@ncleg.net; Bill.Owens@ncleg.net; Dew ey.Hill@ncleg.net; Jim.Crawford@ncleg.net; William.Brisson@ncleg.net. And copy the Governor (governor.office@nc.gov) so she knows she IS doing the right thing. You can also sign this online petition in support of Gov. Perdue’s veto.
