SFAB to consider waiver applications Nov. 16-17

The School Finance Accountability Board will meet Nov. 16-17 to consider waiver applications related to teacher compensation accountabilities. Districts that missed one or both accountabilities received a letter from the department with information regarding the process for seeking a waiver from financial penalties.

At its Oct. 19 meeting, the board discussed the waiver application process. It was determined that school districts that missed both accountabilities by 0.5 percent or less or met one accountability and were within 0.5 percent of the other do not need to be present for a hearing pending inspection of the waiver and documentation from the Department of Education.
