A BILL TO BE ENTITLED AN ACT TO CLARIFY AND CODIFY JURY INSTRUCTIONS FOR A BUDGET DISPUTE BETWEEN BOARD OF EDUCATION AND BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS.
Amends GS 115C-431(c) expanding and clarifying the required issue submitted to the jury for a budget dispute between a board of education and board of county commissioners. Accordingly, the issue submitted to the jury must be what amount of money is necessary from all sources to maintain a system of free public schools and what amount of money is needed from the county to make up this total. The jury must also be instructed that the board of county commissioners is required to provide the appropriation legally necessary to support a system of free public schools, and that the jury must consider the educational goals and policies of the State, the budgetary request of the local board of education, the financial resources of the county, and the fiscal policies of the board of county commissioners.
