PART VI. PUBLIC SCHOOL ACCOUNTABILITY AND ASSESSMENT
17:391.10 Monitoring of programs by Department of Education
A. The State Department of Education shall periodically monitor all programs of educational accountability established pursuant to the provisions of this Part. The methodology to be used in monitoring such programs shall be established by the state Department of Education with the approval of its governing authority and shall be sufficient to determine whether such programs have been implemented, to what extent they have been implemented, and whether such programs comply with the provisions of this Part. Copies of the accountability evaluation procedure, evaluation forms, and program as established by the local school board and approved by the state Department of Education shall be distributed through the local school systems to all employees affected by the educational accountability program.
B. If, in conducting such monitoring, the state Department of Education determines that a school system has failed to implement its programs of educational accountability properly or that a school system has failed to comply with the provisions of this Part, the state Department of Education shall notify such system of such failure, and the school system shall correct such failure within sixty calendar days after receiving such notification. The state Department of Education shall also notify the State Board of Elementary and Secondary Education of such failure by the school system.
If the failures are not corrected within the prescribed sixty calendar days, the state Department of Education shall notify the State Board of Elementary and Secondary Education of such continued failure and shall recommend to the board whatever sanctions against such school system the department deems appropriate. The State Board of Elementary and Secondary Education shall act upon such recommendation within sixty calendar days after its receipt.
