EdNC. Essential education news. Important stories. Your voice.


Though it wasn’t mentioned during the press conference yesterday, Pat Ryan, spokesman for Senate President Pro Tempore Phil Berger, R-Rockingham, confirmed to EdNC’s Alex Granados that an average daily membership hold harmless is included in the Senate’s PCS of House Bill 1105. See section 3.1 on page 34.

School districts and education leaders have been asking the legislature for a hold harmless because COVID-19 is causing a lower number of students to show up for school than projected in some districts.

The N.C. General Assembly convenes at noon today. A press conference with Speaker of the House Tim Moore and Berger will be held at 12:30. The Senate will take up the PCS first. A Senate appropriations committee meeting will be held at 1:00.
