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.
