The State Board of Education will meet Friday, March 27, at 11 a.m. via conference call from the 7th Floor Board Room, Education Building, 301 N. Wilmington St., Raleigh. The board will consider COVID-19 related actions. The meeting agenda is available online and includes a link to audio access for the meeting.

According to the Insider, yesterday Speaker Tim Moore “broke down funds available for North Carolina. Lawmakers have set aside $3.9 billion in the unemployment trust fund and $1.1 billion in the savings reserve fund or rainy day fund. There is $2.2 billion of cash on hand in unappropriated funds, $184 million in the Medicaid contingency reserved and $74 million in the disaster relief fund.”

These are the sources EdNC checks every day: The New York Times, The 74, Education Week, The NC Tribune, The Insider, The News & Observer, The Charlotte Observer, WUNC, WFAE, Brookings, Education Commission of the States, and DPI’s News. A cross section of diverse sources are checked weekly and monthly. If you have an article you think needs to be included, email [email protected].
