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. Allows Cumberland County Schools to open as early as ten days prior to the Monday closest to August 26 (currently, no earlier than the Monday closest to August 26), excluding year-round schools. Deletes the provisions of subsection (d) concerning waiver of the calendar requirements upon a showing of good cause.
Applies beginning with the 2019-20 school year.
