Who We Are

A project of WakeUP Wake County, Great Schools in Wake Coalition (GSIW) is a community coalition of organizations, business leaders, parents and citizen advocates who are working to ensure educational excellence in the Wake County Public School System.  GSIW’s mission is to provide accurate information to educate the public about policy initiatives that would impact the quality of education, foster well-informed discussions about critical education issues, and advocate for policies that improve public education in Wake County.

What’s New?

YOUR INPUT IS CRITICAL!
On Sept 2, WCPSS staff presented recommendations for FIVE under enrolled and crowded schools. Let the staff know your thoughts.
 
WCPSS has released its Student Enrollment Proposal for 2015 and beyond. With the passage of the 2013 bond and new schools being built, assignment changes must be made to fill those schools. WCPSS welcomes public comments as the School Board and staff shape this proposal into a full-fledged plan. Please take the time to visit the website to learn more and weigh in. And please share this with your friends!
