NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC (WECT) - The New Hanover County School Board unanimously approved a tighter fraternization policy.
The policy points out that disciplinary action should be taken if a superior has a relationship with an employee.
This policy does not apply to teacher and teacher relationships. They also added a clause to prohibit intern and faculty relationships.
It is unclear what prompted the review of the policy, but a school board member says a relationship in the central office sparked the discussion.
