The Wake County school board’s government relations committee will get an update Monday on the ongoing General Assembly long session and discuss school calendar flexibility.
The committee will get an update on the bills that have been filed this legislative session. The focus will be on the bills dealing with K-12 education.
The second agenda topic is a “discussion of need for calendar flexibility.” Wake, like most of the school districts in North Carolina, are not fans of the state’s school calendar law.
The law, first passed in 2004, restricts when traditional-calendar schools can begin and end the school year. School leaders complain it limits their flexibility on things, such as responding to snow days.
Wake’s legislative agenda includes calling for the calendar law to be amended to give more flexibility to districts.
