The board's primary responsibility is to ensure successful learning for all students. Only in exceptional circumstances will the board approve students receiving individualized instruction at the expense of the school district.
Recommendations from the superintendent for individualized instruction will state the need for the instruction, the objectives and goals sought for the instruction, the employee requirements for the instruction, the implementation procedures for the instruction and the evaluation procedures and processes that will be used to assess the value of the instruction.
It is the responsibility of the superintendent to develop administrative regulations for individualized instruction. The Board desires student learning that recognizes students are individuals and learning optimized to meet learning standards.
