Our North Carolina General Assembly is moving quickly this legislative session and we want our employees to be informed about what’s happening in Raleigh that could affect local districts.
Associate General Counsel Jonathan Sink, who also serves as the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Board of Education’s legislative liaison, monitors legislation that could affect us. Traveling frequently between Charlotte and Raleigh, he advocates for the Board’s legislative priorities in the General Assembly. The reason for our advocacy is we want to help shape legislation that is beneficial for public school children and the employees who make their education possible.
Education is getting a lot of attention this year. There are bills about school safety, school construction, teachers, curriculum, diplomas and education finances. This page is intended to share education-related legislative highlights with CMS employees and the Charlotte-Mecklenburg community at large, tracking the filing of key bills to their signature by the governor.
We’ll update this page often as events unfold in Raleigh.
