CRESWELL SCHOOL DISTRICT #40

 

MEETING DATE: 9-13-06    DATE PREPARED:  9-7-06

AGENDA ITEM:  #16  AGENDA TITLE:  Alternative Ed providers

ITEM REQUESTED BY:  Policy

 

SUMMARY:  Board policy requires administration to prepare a list of the private alternative schools recommended for board approval. 

 

SUPERINTENDENT’S ADVICE:  Dr. Adler researches all alt/ed providers and has compiled the requisite evaluation materials.  At this time we recommend postponement of the Home Source provider until we can get our procedures in order.  I have approved a number of applications from home school families who were approved last year.  Depending on how policy is revised, those approvals may stand for this year, or could be rescinded by board action.

 

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ATTACHED: 

1.  Private alternative education programs.
