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) as the title indicates. Allows Moore County Schools to open as early as August 10 (currently, no earlier than the Monday closest to August 26), excluding year round schools. Deletes all provisions of subsection (d) concerning waiver of the opening and closing date requirements upon a showing of good cause.
Amends GS 115C-174.12(a)(4) to allow Moore County Schools to administer assessments prior to the conclusion of a semester when the fall semester ends before December 31.
Applies beginning with the 2019-20 school year.
