CARY, N.C. -

Wake schools leaders held first discussions Tuesday concerning enrollment changes that will be necessary for the 2015-16 school year when two new high schools and an elementary school opens.

School board member Christine Kushner started the discussion by saying the changes are needed due to growth in the county.

Kushner said the board knows the decisions made will impact many people's lives and “will not be made lightly.”

The enrollment changes will help fill Apex Friendship High in Apex, Abbotts Creek Elementary in North Raleigh and Scotts Ridge Elementary in Apex.
