    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. 

    Amends GS 115C-84.2(d) to add that regardless of the required opening date under subsection (d), a local school board may choose to schedule school opening and closing dates for any school in the local administrative unit to coincide with the opening and closing dates of a community college that serves the city or county in which the school unit is located.

    This act applies only to the Caldwell County school administrative unit, beginning with the 2015-16 school year.
