The Wake County school board is hosting a series of forums designed to allow parents to speak up about what they’d like to see from their schools. If you’d like to come, speakers can begin signing up at 4 pm. Members of the school board will speak from 6:00 to 6:30 at each event, and anyone who signed up may speak from 6:30 until 8:00. Attendance at the first forum was very low, so the school board would love to hear from more parents!
