    House committee substitute to the 1st edition makes technical organizational changes to the proposed additions to GS 115C-12(23), applicable to Onslow County only. 


  • Summary date: Mar 11 2021 - More information

    These provisions are applicable to Onslow County only. Amends GS 115C-12 to provide that if the State Board of Education (Board) authorizes a designated organization to apply and enforce the Board's rules governing participation in interscholastic athletic activities at the high school level, that organization must allow for the creation of a conference made up solely of qualifying high schools to be afforded all rights and privileges granted to other conferences within that designated organization if: (1) there are at least six qualifying high schools (meaning those with an average daily membership in the 2019-2020 school year of 800 students or more) within a geographic region; (2) the conference consists of only qualifying high schools; (3) the conference is open to all qualifying high schools in the geographic region; and (4) participation in the conference is optional.

    Allows a conference to be created as provided in GS 115C-12 so long as any designated organization is notified at least 30 days before the start of the 2021-22 school year. Allows schools joining a conference by that date to withdraw, without penalty, from any scheduling contracts previously entered into for the 2021-22 season.
