Bill summary

Under current law, GS 115C-84.2(d) provides authority to local boards of education to determine the dates for the opening and closing of 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) as the title indicates. Deletes all provisions of subsection (d) except the authorization given to local boards of education to determine the dates for the opening and closing dates for public schools. This act applies only to the Cabarrus County school administrative unit beginning with the 2015-16 school year.
