    Includes whereas clauses. 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. 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) as the title indicates, providing additional flexibility to Chatham County Schools by eliminating opening and closing date parameters. Permits that all first semester exams to be given before winter break. Applies beginning with the 2021-22 school year.
