Update on Union County BOE vs. BOCC funding dispute
On April 7, 2015, the North Carolina Court of Appeals issued a decision in the funding dispute matter between the Board of Education and the Board of County Commissioners. The central issue before the Court of Appeals was a first-time interpretation of the law and, while not explicitly stated, the Court read into the law a limitation on the amount of money that could be requested by the Board of Education in a budget dispute trial. Under this interpretation the Board of Education is limited to the amount of its budget request rather than evidence of the school system’s needs.
