NC House Bill 13 - Shared at the Principals Meeting -- If this bill is passed reducing the class sizes in k-3 will have an impact on NC Schools. WCPSS will need to add 460+ teachers (costing about 26 million). This would impact the way districts use flexibility with academic (arts, languages, PE, and other areas) months and teachers months for k-3 positions. Additional Information. Travis is available to meet with individuals or teams, at this time the district has not made adjustments to allotments. The bill has passed in the house and is now in the senate. More info to come.
