  • Summary date: Mar 16 2015 - More information

    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 (d) by deleting the provision that included exemptions from the dates for schools with a modified calendar for 2003-04 or that were part of a planned program in 2003-04. Adds new language that provides that regardless of the required opening and closing dates under subsection (d), a local school board may align the school calendar for schools in the local administrative unit to align with the opening and closing dates of a community college that serves the city or county in which the school unit is located.
