NC Prep Sports Group Must Change In Bill OK'd By Senate

New Bern High School - Facebook

The North Carolina High School Athletic Association would have to accept financial and administrative changes if it wants to continue in the role under legislation tentatively approved by the Senate. The measure essentially tells the association and the State Board of Education to come up with a written agreement on how the association will carry out board policy on interscholastic sports. NCHSAA leaders have received the scorn of Republican legislators who've heard from constitutents unhappy with the association. The new measure in part demands the association follow open meeting and public records laws. An initial Senate vote took place Wednesday, with another one expected next week.
