Applies only to Surry County, Surry County Schools, Mount Airy City Schools, and Elkin City Schools.
Amends GS 115C-366 as follows. Allows a student domiciled in a local school administrative unit, upon request by the parent or guardian, to be assigned without paying tuition to another local school administrative unit located within the same county if existing seats are available beyond those needed for students domiciled within that unit. Requires payment of applicable out-of-unit fees. The assignment is effective only for the current school year but must be annually renewed as long as the local school administrative unit to which the student has transferred has existing seats available beyond those necessary for students domiciled within that unit.
Adds that if a local board of education requests capital outlay funding to construct a new building or enlarge an existing building to increase seats for students and another local board of education within the same county has existing seats available beyond those necessary for students domiciled within the unit, the board of county commissioners may direct the local boards of education within the county to enter into an agreement to assign students without the payment of tuition to the local school administrative unit with existing seats available. The assignment is effective only for the current school year but may be renewed annually at the discretion of the board of county commissioners.
