Superintendents: Alternative Education Program Evaluation Self-Assessment Due July 15

Alternative Education Program Evaluation Self-Assessment Memorandum – SY 2020-2021


I hope this finds each of you well after what has been a truly unprecedented year. Pursuant to the Mississippi Code of 1972, Section 37-13-92, the school boards of all school districts shall establish, maintain, and operate, in connection with the regular programs of the school district, an alternative school program and/or behavior modification program as defined by the State Board of Education, Chapter 7: Alternate Education Programs, Rule 7.1 Guidelines.

The Office of Compulsory School Attendance Enforcement is requesting that each school district submit their annual Alternative Education Evaluation Self-Assessment on or before July 15, 2021.

As a reminder, if you do not submit your district’s annual Alternative Education Evaluation Self-Assessment, it will result as a violation of MS Code of 1972, Section 37-13-92. If a district is found in violation, a letter of noncompliance will be submitted to the Office of Accreditation which may impact your district’s accreditation status.
