Earlier I mentioned how Wake County does “Schools of Choice”.
I got a better one now. I sent this off to the Board, the FIC and Wiegand this morning:
I came across yet another school district (San Francisco) that does a most excellent job of explaining the registration process. They pretty much describe exactly what we do without using the words “choice” or “proximity”. They also have an online school selector that tells you which school is in which area and allows you to choose various features.
