Administrative Rule Waivers

A school district may apply for a waiver from an administrative rule governing school accreditation in order to implement an alternative plan to meet the administrative rule that will better meet local learning goals, enhance educational opportunities, promote equity, or increase accountability. The most common reason for applying for such a waiver is to offer a high school level course, taught by a high school certified teacher, to students below grade nine for high school graduation credit.
