    Twice in 2023, members of the North Carolina House of Representatives overwhelmingly passed two bills addressing flexibility for school calendar start dates, but those bills are still awaiting approval from the North Carolina Senate before they become law.

    Rep. Jake Johnson told the Times-News on Jan. 14 when the House goes back in session in the spring, they will attempt to get those bills passed once again.
