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.
House committee substitute makes the following changes to the 2nd edition.
Amends GS 115C-431(c), deleting a provision that required the court to find the facts as to the amount of money necessary to maintain a system of free public schools, and the amount of money needed from the county to make up this total. Makes clarifying changes and provides that the required issues that the judge or jury must find regarding the maintenance of a system of free public schools are (1) the amount of money legally necessary from all sources and (2) the amount of money legally necessary from the board of county commissioners. In making the finding the judge or jury must consider the educational goals and policies of the state and local board of education, the budgetary request of the local board of education, the financial resources of the county and local board of education, and the fiscal policies of the board of county commissioners and board of education.
