School Calendar Flexibility Passes N.C. House

Publisher's Note: This post appears here courtesy of the Carolina Journal. The author of this post is CJ Staff.

    The North Carolina House has passed a bill that would give individual school districts more flexibility to set their own calendars. House Bill 376 passed the chamber on Thursday, April 22, by a vote of 114-1. The only "no" vote came from Rep. Frank Iler, R-Brunswick.

    The measure sets that local boards of education have the authority to determine the first and last days of school, within these parameters. "Except for year-round schools, the opening date for students shall be no earlier than the Monday closest to August 19, and the closing date for students shall be no later than the Friday closest to June 11."

    Under current law, schools can open no earlier than the Monday closest to Aug. 26.

    The law would not apply to schools determined by the local board to have a "modified calendar." The change would take effect for the 2021-22 school year.

    The bill now goes to the Senate.
