Policy Type: 

State law encourages districts to operate alternative school programs or to ensure access to educational services to expelled students in an alternative setting.

North Dakota Administrative Code 67-16-01-01. Eligibility.

Any public school district in North Dakota may apply to the superintendent of public instruction for establishment of an alternative education program for students from the ages of sixteen to twenty-one who have dropped out of school. The alternative programming shall be under the administration of a public school district.

North Dakota Administrative Code 67-16-01-06. Monitoring.

The department of public instruction will monitor alternative programs by reviewing annual documentation including fall reports and completion rate data:

    1. Certificate of compliance.
    1. School calendar.
    1. MIS03 certified personnel record.
    1. Pupil membership report.

North Dakota Administrative Code 67-16-01-07. Cooperative alternative programs.

School districts may develop cooperative programs with other school districts to provide access to courses for as many students as possible. Tuition agreements must be completed and approved by the districts involved in the cooperative alternative program. No written agreement is necessary if the nonresident student is enrolled in an approved alternative education program for which no tuition is charged.
