    As the title indicates, permits the local board of education for Moore County Schools to align their calendar with the calendar of a community college serving in the city or county in which the school unit is located, notwithstanding the requirements of GS 115C-84.2(d). Applies beginning with the 2023-24 school year.

    Under current law, GS 115C-84.2(d) provides authority to local boards of education to determine the opening and closing dates for public schools under GS 115C-84.2(a)(1). However, the local boards must comply with specified parameters for the opening and closing dates of public schools as provided in GS 115C-84.2(d). Subsection (d) also provides criteria under which the State Board of Education may waive those requirements upon a showing of good cause by a local board of education.
