On Tuesday, March 7, the Wake Board of Education considered recommendations to change the bell schedule for the following schools: Apex High, Apex Elementary, North Forest Pines Elementary, Heritage Elementary and Wake Forest Middle. These changes were discussed at length as board members debated how to balance family and academic needs.
Beginning pay for a bus driver in the Wake County Public School System is $12.55 an hour, which has limited the number of drivers the school system can attract. More information about driver qualifications and requirements can be found here.
If you have feedback on the proposed bell schedule changes, please share them below.
