State Board of Education Policy Manual
This website contains the official policies of the North Carolina State Board of Education (NCSBE). These policies are intended to move us forward toward the full implementation of all federal regulations, North Carolina General Statutes, and NCSBE goals and priorities. This process causes constant change, moving ever forward on the road to improving public education in the state.
This online presentation of the NCSBE's Policy Manual is an electronic representation of the currently adopted policies and was created to provide an easily accessible online reference that can be updated as policies and procedures change. It does not reflect updating activities currently in progress, that have not received the NCSBE's approval.
Prior to February 1, 2017, the NCSBE policy identification codes reflected the acronyms of the NCSBE committee name that shepherded those policies. Effective February 1, you will note that the policy identification codes have been shortened and that the first four letters are now an acronym for the subject area of the policy category (e.g., Accountability = ACCT; Graduation = GRAD; etc.), not the NCSBE committees’ acronyms. If you need assistance in finding an NCSBE policy, please click on the SBE Policy Category/Code Crosswalk link below.
We trust your visit to our website will be productive and informative. Comments regarding our website are welcomed. Please visit our website for policy guidance
