Private Schools Emergency Waiver 2021

Private School Notification of Emergency Waiver in Response to Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19)

The State Board of Education has been granted authority by the Legislature to allow private schools to waive certain graduation requirements for individual students for the 2020-2021 school year. The emergency rules adopted by the State Board of Education also allows a private school to retain its approval status if the COVID emergency caused a disruption in the school's program so that the hours or days requirement of Basic Education will not be met by the school in the 2020-2021 school year.

This survey is to notify the State Board of Education of your private school's use of the emergency waiver for graduation requirements, and/or the waiver of the hours or days requirement.  More information about the emergency waiver may be found in the Emergency Waiver/Rules FAQ on the SBE website.
