AN ACT TO PERMIT CERTAIN LOCAL BOARDS OF EDUCATION TO ALIGN THEIR SCHOOL CALENDARS WITH THOSE OF COMMUNITY COLLEGES SERVING THEIR COMMUNITIES.
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) to add that regardless of the required opening date under subsection (d), a local school board may choose to align school calendars in the local administrative unit with the calendar of a community college that serves the city or county in which the school unit is located.
This act applies only to the Halifax County, Nash-Rocky Mount, Roanoke Rapids, Vance County, Warren County, Weldon City, and Wilson County school administrative units, beginning with the 2015-16 school year.
