AN ACT TO CLARIFY STUDENT RIGHTS TO ENGAGE IN PRAYER AND RELIGIOUS ACTIVITY IN SCHOOL, TO CREATE AN ADMINISTRATIVE PROCESS FOR REMEDYING COMPLAINTS REGARDING EXERCISE OF THOSE STUDENT RIGHTS, AND TO CLARIFY RELIGIOUS ACTIVITY FOR SCHOOL PERSONNEL.
Senate amendment to the 2nd edition makes the following changes. Deletes the specified grievance steps in GS 115C-407.31(a)-(c) and instead allows the local board of education to establish or make available an existing formal grievance process to allow students or the parents or guardians to present allegations that a right established under the Article has been violated by a public school. Requires the process to include the right of appeal to the local board of education. Specifies the process to be followed if the local board of education does not provide a formal grievance process (this process is identical to the one deleted from subsections a through c).
