arrow Previous bar Next arrow

(a) If on or after July 31, 2008, and any succeeding year in which a district operates a Concept 6 program, the state board finds that a district has failed to make substantial progress in eliminating the Concept 6 program, or if on or after July 31, 2009, and any succeeding year in which a district operates a Concept 6 program, the state board finds that a district has failed to develop a specific school building plan, the state board shall hold a public hearing to determine the cause of the failure and the remedies to be undertaken by the state board to ensure elimination of the Concept 6 program by the earliest practicable date and no later than July 1, 2012.

(b) Prior to the public hearing, the Superintendent of Public Instruction and the State Allocation Board shall each provide a written analysis and opinion to the state board as to the cause of the failure and the remedies proposed to be undertaken. The State Allocation Board shall render its opinion based upon a written analysis prepared by the Office of Public School Construction. The district may submit its own analysis as to the cause of the failure and remedies it proposes to be undertaken.

(c) After the public hearing, the state board shall adopt a remedial plan that the district shall follow to ensure elimination of the Concept 6 program by the earliest practicable date and no later than July 1, 2012.

(d) (1) If the state board determines that the failure of a district to achieve substantial progress or develop a specific school building plan is due to circumstances beyond the control of the district, the remedial plan adopted by the state board may provide for technical assistance to the district from the department, the Office of Public School Construction, or the Division of the State Architect. The remedial plan may also recommend action for state financial assistance necessary to enable the district to eliminate the Concept 6 program by the earliest date practicable and no later than July 1, 2012.

(2) If the state board determines that the failure of the district to achieve substantial progress or develop a specific school building plan is not due to circumstances beyond the control of the district, but due to its failure to act diligently to plan for the elimination of the Concept 6 program or to execute its comprehensive action plan, the remedial plan shall mandate at least quarterly review and oversight of the district by the department. The remedial plan may also include any of the measures described in paragraph (1) or other measures as the state board deems necessary to enable the district to eliminate the Concept 6 program by the earliest date practicable and no later than July 1, 2012.
