I really dont know about Mecklenburgs policy. I want to make sure it is clear that Union County will not use corp punishment unless the parents have approved it. They will not just spank a child, anymore.

Union County Public Schools

The Union County Board of Education prohibits corporal punishment, believing that other
consequences are more appropriate and effective for teaching self control.
No principal, assistant principal, teacher, substitute teacher, any other school
system employee, or volunteer may use corporal punishment to discipline
any student. Corporal punishment is defined as the physical use of a hand,
paddle, or other instrument to administer corrective discipline such as
paddling, spanking, or otherwise striking a child.

School personnel may use reasonable force in the exercise of lawful authority
to restrain or correct pupils and maintain order to prevent immediate
threats of harm to person or property:
(1) To quell a disturbance threatening injury to others;
(2) To obtain possession of weapons or other dangerous objects on the
person, or within the control, of a student;
(3) For self-defense;
(4) For the protection of persons or property; or
(5) To maintain order on school property, in the classroom, or at a school
related activity on or off school property.

Mecklenburg County Public Schools

Corporal punishment is prohibited in the school system and shall not
be used in any circumstances to maintain discipline.
