CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

Charlotte Mecklenburg school board meets Wednesday night and they have a lot on their agenda.

They will be discussing student assignment, offering more options to students and bringing attention to the alternative school called Turning Point Academy.  Also on the agenda is selecting board leadership.

WBTV has been told leadership will remain the same, with Mary McCray staying onboard as the school board chairperson and Tim Morgan as the Vice Chairman. 

Also tonight two new school board members will be joining the board. They are Thelma Byers-Bailey, who will replace Richard McElrath, and Paul Bailey, who will replace Amelia Stinson-Wesley.

They will be sworn in tonight and will immediately get to work.  They will vote on several measures and hear a report concerning teacher pay and tenure.

WBTV's Dedrick Russell is working on this story and will have what impact, if any, the new school board will have on students.  

You can catch his stories on WBTV at 4 and 5 tonight.
