WASSA Tuesday Tips

Required Annual Notice Reminder

As we begin the 2017-18 school year, here is a short Tuesday Tip. 

Remember that school boards are required by section 120.12(13) of the state statutes to notify the parents/guardians enrolled in the school district of the student academic standards that will be in effect for the school year.  Boards must provide this notification annually, prior to the beginning of the school term.  This notice may be provided electronically, including by posting the notice or a link to the specific academic standards on the school district’s website.  Also, the school board must annually include an item on the agenda of the first school board meeting of the school year (the first board meeting after July 1) that clearly identifies the student academic standards adopted by the board under section 118.30(1g)(a)1 of the state statutes that will be in effect for the school year.

Additional information on the academic standards notice requirements can be found on WASB’s website. 

When preparing the agenda for your first meeting of 2017-18, remember to include this as an action item!  More Annual Notice information to come in the next Tuesday Tip!

Happy “New Year” to all!
