Bill summary

House committee substitute deletes the provisions of the 1st edition and now provides the following.

Part I.

Amends GS 115D-3 to explicitly authorize the President of the Community College System to reorganize the Community Colleges System Office in accordance with recommendations and plans submitted to and approved by the State Board of Community Colleges. Establishes a reporting requirement, requiring the President to report by June 30 of the fiscal year in which the reorganization occurred to the specified NCGA committee and division in the event a reorganization is implemented under the authority granted. Specifies that the reporting requirement is triggered by any movement of positions and funds between fund codes on a recurring basis. 

Part II.

Amends GS 115D-21.5, which sets forth requirements that must be satisfied for community colleges to receive funds available from the State Board of Community Colleges for the NC Career Coach program. Amends the current requirement that mandates a dollar for dollar match of local funds to instead establish matching requirements based on the development tier designation of the county in which the local school administrative unit is located where the career coach is assigned on the date of the award of funds by the State Board of Community Colleges. Requires no local match in tier one counties, 1:2 match for tier two counties, and a 1:1 match for tier three counties. 

Appropriates $1,733,413 in recurring funds for the 2019-20 fiscal year and $566,587 in recurring funds for the 2020-21 fiscal year from the General Fund to the System Office to implement the new matching requirements and to place additional career coached employed by local community colleges with partnering high schools. 

Deems the provisions of the Part to supersede GS 143C-5-4 in the event they conflict. Provides that the provisions are effective until the Current Operations Appropriations Act for the applicable year becomes law, at which point the Director of the Budget will adjust allotments to give effect to that act from July 1 of the fiscal year. 

Effective July 1, 2019.

Makes conforming changes to the act's titles.
