The 2012 audit is finally complete. Copies of the audit are available at the school board, should anyone wish to see it. The audit is a public record.

The 2013-2014 school calendar has been approved. The school board decided to go with a 180-day calendar, as per feedback from the public. 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.
