Bill summary

House committee substitute to the 1st edition deletes the content of the previous edition and replaces it with the following.

Makes the act applicable to only Rockingham, Stokes, and Surry counties.

Requires the governing board of a public or nonpublic school to consult with the local health department and set out the number of people who may attend graduation or commencement ceremonies held for the 2020-21 school year. Prohibits that number from exceeding the occupancy or fire capacity of the venue used for the ceremony.

Amends GS 115C-84.2 to provide that the school opening and closing dates (no earlier than the Monday closest to August 26 and no later than the Friday closest to June 11, respectively) do not apply when the school's calendar is aligned so that it is no earlier than the opening date of a community college serving the county in which the school unit is located. Makes organizational and clarifying changes. Applies beginning with the 2021-22 school year.

Makes conforming changes to the act's titles.
