Under current law, GS 115C-84.2(d) provides authority to local boards of education to determine the dates for 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 provide that regardless of the parameters for opening and closing dates of public schools set in subsection (d), the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County schools may schedule the opening and closing dates for any school in the local school administrative unit (unit) to coincide with the opening and closing dates of a community college that serves the city or county in which the unit is located. Applies only to the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County schools beginning with the 2015-16 school year.
