(a) Each board of education shall designate as the official depositories of the local
school administrative unit one or more banks, savings and loan associations, or trust
companies in this State. It shall be unlawful for any money belonging to a local school administrative unit
or an individual school to be deposited in any place, bank, or trust company other
than an official depository, except as permitted by G.S. 115C-443(b); however, moneys belonging to an administrative unit or an individual school may
be deposited in official depositories in Negotiable Order of Withdrawal (NOW) accounts.
(b) Money on deposit in an official depository or deposited at interest pursuant to
G.S. 115C-443(b) shall be secured by deposit insurance, surety bonds, or investment securities of
such nature, in a sufficient amount to protect the administrative unit or an individual
school on account of deposit of moneys made therein, and in such manner, as may be
prescribed by rule or regulation of the Local Government Commission. When deposits are secured in accordance with this subsection, no public officer
or employee may be held liable for any losses sustained by a local school administrative
unit because of the default or insolvency of the depository.
