To keep up with projected growth in some parts of the county and prevent the overcrowding of schools, we’re opening three new schools:
- Apex Friendship Elementary, 801 Humie Olive Road, Apex, opening in August 2022
- Barton Pond Elementary, 12004 Strickland Road, Raleigh, opening August 2022
- Herbert Akins Road Middle, 2255 Herbert Akins Road, Fuquay-Varina, opening July 2022
Other parts of the proposal are aimed at relieving some overcrowded schools, increasing the base attendance areas at under-utilized schools, and improving transportation efficiency.
Some students affected by this proposal will be able to submit a stability transfer and remain at their current school. Review the stability rules.
