Additionaly, the school board has implemented an additional 15 minutes for elementary school days, high and middle schools already opperate on a six-hour workday.

In reagrds to a request made in October, the board voted to rename the North Stanly High School (NSHS) gym to the L.R. Chandler Gymnasium, in honor of former NSHS coach and current school board member Lonnie R. Chandler.
