The Superintendent of Schools shall follow the State Education Department guidelines in determining such equivalence on an annual basis, and report to the Board, upon request, on the status of District Schools with regard to equivalence. The District shall maintain records, updated biannually, documenting this equivalence.
Complaints regarding the District’s implementation of this equivalence requirement shall be addressed in accordance with Board policy 1400, Public Concerns.
