Wake County Board of Education
The Wake County Board of Education is the local governing body of the Wake County Public School System. Its nine members are currently elected from separate county districts.
The school board sets policy for the school system implemented by the superintendent and administrative staff. The board also adopts an annual budget proposal that includes its request for local funding from the Wake County Board of Commissioners as well as its plan for using state and federal funds. The school board does not have taxing authority.
The North Carolina State Board of Education, as legislated by the North Carolina General Assembly, provides statewide public school governance. The state is responsible for the majority of the district's funding as well as oversight of core academic curricula.
Due to an Executive Order issued November 10 that limits indoor gatherings to 10 people, the school board is unable to accommodate in-person attendance until further notice. To ensure meetings remain open, all public meetings will be streamed live on the school system's YouTube channel. Citizens are invited to submit public comment in writing or in video format to be included as part of the public record of regularly-scheduled full board meetings. The schedule for all committe and full board meetings can be found on the right side of this web page or on the calendar portion of the WCPSS home page.
