Amendment of 1C SBCCC 200.94 - “Holiday Leave”

On 20 April 2018, the State Board of Community Colleges voted to amend 1C SBCCC 200.94 - “Holiday Leave.” After the report issued by the Office of State Auditor on January 25, 2018, the State Board of Community Colleges sought to avoid potential inequities created between community college and State employees participating in the same Teachers and State Employees Retirement System (TSERS), by community college employees earning annual leave being paid more Holiday Leave than State employees.

The rule will be effective 1 July 2018. The new rule will be published on the NC Community College System's website, www.nccommunitycolleges.edu, under "State Board Code." For your convenience, a copy of the rule is attached to this memorandum.

On 20 July 2018, the State Board of Community Colleges voted to adopt 1A SBCCC 200.5 "System Advisory Council" to provide a standing body to discuss and make recommendations to the SBCC on issues of system-wide or intercollegiate importance. This body will help to promote communication, collaboration, and cohesiveness within the System.

The rule will be effective 1 August 2018. The new rule will be published on the NC Community College System's website, www.nccommunitycolleges.edu, under "State Board Code."

Adoption of 1A SBCCC 200.4 - "Sound Fiscal and Management Practices"

On 20 July 2018, the State Board of Community Colleges voted to adopt 1A SBCCC 200.4 "Sound Fiscal and Management Practices.” It is important to have sound fiscal and management policies in the operation of college business offices. Also, G.S. 115D-6.5 references “sound fiscal and management practices,” so it is important to have a policy detailing what constitutes soundfiscal and management practices.

The rule will be effective 1 August 2018. The new rule will be published on the NC Community College System's website, www.nccommunitycolleges.edu, under "State Board Code."
