BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WECT) – The 2012-2013 budget for the Brunswick County Board of Education was approved Wednesday, according to a press release from a county spokesperson.
The approval came after discussing financial impacts of giving one-time employee bonuses, or changing the current supplemental schedule.
However, one member was absent, so the board decided to table the discussion for a later date.

Additionally, the board voted to change the system’s school uniform policy.
The policies will go into effect for all Brunswick County students, but a separate policy is in effect for Belville Elementary, Lincoln Elementary, Town Creek Elementary, and Leland Middle School.
The following changes are per an email from spokesperson Jessica Swencki:
“Highlights of the uniform policy revision:
Students at Belville, Lincoln, and Town Creek Elementary are now permitted to wear any solid color polo shirt. Previously, students were limited to three different color polos designated by the school.
Students at Leland Middle School are still permitted to wear any color solid or striped polo shirt.
Polo shirts at all four schools are now permitted to bear a logo no larger than a quarter or the school insignia.
As an added option, students at all four schools can choose to wear blue or black jeans or the standard khaki, navy blue, or black pants every Friday.
The Board of Education's policy review and revision was in response to feedback from parents and administrators within the four schools. The policy revision does not pose any additional cost to parents whose children attend one of the four schools already required to comply with the uniform policy. The changes simply allow these families more flexibility.”
