Mandate Information
Mandate Title:
Promulgate Regulations: division level academic review
Purpose of legislation
Provides that the Board of Education has authority to require a school division with chronically low-performing schools, as a result of failure of the school division to implement the Standards of Quality, to undergo a division level academic review. At the completion of the review, each school board must submit a corrective action plan to raise student achievement and to achieve full accreditation status to the Board of Education for approval and also include it in the school division’s six-year improvement plan. The Board of Education may petition the circuit court having jurisdiction in the school division to mandate compliance with the relevant standard and the development or implementation of the required corrective plan when it determines that a school division has failed or refused, and continues to fail or refuse, to comply with the Standards of Quality and the development or implementation in a timely manner of the corrective action plan.
