Main Points

​Proposed amendments to Policy IMG, "Service Animals" are before the Board for First Reading.  The proposed amendments allow CMS to conform to federal and state regulatory changes since the last update of Policy IMG in 2011.  The new policy language was developed over the past 18 months using multiple CMS personnel and departments comparing how other North Carolina School Districts handle this policy and well as taking best practices from other states.   This policy change was considered by the Policy Committee on July 13, 2017 and was approved by a 3 – 0 vote.
