FORUM: “EQUAL EDUCATION at Knightdale High School?”

Thursday, December 3, 2009

On Tuesday, January 26th (7-8:30pm) we are hosting our first community forum at Knightdale Town Hall, 950 Steeple Square Court.

FORUM: “EQUAL EDUCATION at Knightdale High School?”

Do Knightdale’s children have equitable opportunities at Knightdale High School?”

Purpose: To invite civic and educational leaders to improve Knightdale citizens’ understanding of current data, policies, resources, and structures that impact Knightdale High School students’ achievement, curriculum, and the financial support of the school.

· Student Achievement: How is student achievement measured? How are our students performing on EOC, SAT, and honor roll? How do we compare to neighboring high schools?

· Curriculum: How many students attend Knightdale High School? Are the courses offered at KHS equal to neighboring high schools? Are the courses offered equal to similar sized schools in the county? Will a move for community schools harm or improve the curriculum offered at Knightdale High School?

· Finances: Does Knightdale High School have equitable federal, state, and community support? How many of KHS students currently qualify for Free & Reduced (F&R) Lunch Program? How many KHS students will qualify for F&R when the Wake County School Board returns to community schools? When a Wake County school has a higher number of students living in poverty does the School Board or even the County Commissioners have an obligation to increase its financial support of that school?
