MERGER GUIDELINES

Should a city school system abandon its character and it becomes incumbent upon the State Board to develop the merger plan, the board must first accomplish the purposes of GS 115C-67 which is the existing legislation and is required of all merger plans regardless of source.  The following steps are recommended to develop a merger plan should the State Board of Education be required to do that.

Upon notice of surrender of a city school system charter:

  • The State Superintendent will appoint a management team to develop the merger plan.  The team will consists of one representative from the Department of Public Instruction and one representative from the Attorney General's Office.
  • The team will obtain all necessary information regarding the merger including consultations with representatives of the school systems involved.
  • Team drafts plan and submits proposed plan to the State Board of Education.
  •  State Board approves plan as the proposed merger plan.
  • A public hearing is held on the proposed merger plan.
  • State Board of Education adopts plan of merger including any modifications necessitated by public hearings.
  • Plan is submitted to the Justice Department for approval if that is required because of the 1964 Voting Rights Act.
