Legislation that likely will create a formal agreement between the nonprofit body currently governing North Carolina high school sports and state education leaders has received final approval. The compromise scales back specific demands previously advanced by legislators that the North Carolina High School Athletic Association fought against. The House and Senate voted separately for the measure Wednesday. The bill tells the State Board of Education it can reach a memorandum of understanding with a nonprofit to administer high school sports. An earlier edition of the bill would have replace the association with a new athletic commission. The bill now heads to Gov. Roy Cooper's desk.
