The student shuffle flight continues in Wake County.

The district could reassign nearly 7,000 students under its draft plan for the upcoming school year.

Some parents are angry about the possibility that their kids will be forced to switch schools.

Others are furious about how the school system let them know about it.

The first of three public hearing on the reassignment matter will take place at Sanderson High School Tuesday evening.

However, some parents say they will be reprimanding the school system for getting a phone call about the plan the night before rather than a tangible letter in advance.

"Once the board makes a decision they'll get a formal letter saying ' here's your assignment for next year and here are your options, you can do AB or C," Wake County School representative, Michael Evans said. "It gives the parents more concrete information to act on and it lets them know where their family stands."
