CHAPTER 406

An Act to provide for flexible implementation alternatives to the Standards of Accreditation for the several school divisions.

[H 2601]

Approved March 18, 1995

Whereas, Standard 3 of the Standards of Quality, § 22.1-253.13:3, requires compliance with the Standards of Accreditation; and

Whereas, the Standards of Accreditation, known as Standards and Regulations for Public Schools in Virginia, provide ample flexibility for the establishment of alternative and innovative programs; now, therefore,

Be it enacted by the General Assembly of Virginia:

1. § 1. Flexibility within the Standards of Accreditation for the several school divisions.

The Board of Education shall identify those provisions of the Standards of Accreditation providing flexible implementation alternatives to the several school divisions of the Commonwealth and shall establish consistent criteria for granting applications for such flexibility. The Board shall inform the House Committee on Appropriations and the Senate Committee on Finance of its findings by November 1, 1995.
