Primary House Sponsors: Rep. Dean Arp (R-Union); Rep. Sarah Stevens (R-Alleghany, Surry, Wilkes); Rep. Mark Brody (R-Anson, Union); Rep David Willis (R-Union)


This bill allows local boards of education in Rockingham County Schools, Stokes County Schools, Surry County Schools, and Union County Schools to align a school’s calendar such that it is no earlier than the opening date of a community college serving the county in which the school is located and also allows local boards to revise the scheduled close date if necessary to comply with the minimum requirements for instructional days/time.
