CHAPTER 18. EDUCATION.

ARTICLE 5E. INNOVATION IN EDUCATION ACT.

§18-5E-6. Evaluation of Innovation in Education designated schools.

(a) During its third full year of operation the county superintendent shall issue a performance report on the Innovation in Education school. The performance report shall summarize the school’s performance record to date based on the data collected under school’s Innovation in Education Plan and operational agreement and shall provide notice of any weaknesses or concerns perceived by the superintendent concerning the school that may jeopardize its designation if not timely rectified. The school and the superintendent shall mutually agree to a reasonable time period for the school to respond to the performance report and submit any corrections to the report.

(b) After its fourth full year of operation, and periodically thereafter as may be provided by the state board, the Innovation in Education school shall be evaluated by the county superintendent. The county superintendent shall submit the evaluation to the county board and the state board. The evaluation shall determine whether the school has met the annual goals outlined in its Innovation in Education Plan and operational agreement and assess the implementation of the Innovation in Education plan at the school.

(c) The county superintendent may recommend to the county board and state board in the evaluation:

(1) To amend or suspend one or more components of the Innovation in Education Plan and operational agreement if the county superintendent determines an amendment or suspension is necessary to improve the performance and student success of the school;

(2) To amend or suspend one or more components of the Innovation in Education Plan and operational agreement if the county superintendent determines an amendment or suspension is necessary because of subsequent changes in the district that affect one or more components of such Innovation in Education Plan;

(3) To support continued operation of the Innovation in Education school in accordance with its Innovation in Education Plan and operational agreement; or

(4) To recommend to the state board that the school be designated as an Innovation in Education demonstration school based on its exemplary performance and student success.

(d) Based on the county superintendent’s evaluation and a data analysis conducted by the West Virginia Department of Education the state board may:

(1) Amend or recommend an amendment to one or more components of the school’s Innovation in Education Plan and operational agreement;

(2) Suspend one or more components of the school’s Innovation in Education Plan and operational agreement;

(3) Affirm continuation of the Innovation in Education school under its current Innovation in Education Plan and operational agreement; or

(4) If it is determined that the school has substantially failed to meet the goals outlined in its Innovation in Education Plan and operational agreement, terminate the Innovation in Education designation of the school.

(e) An amendment, suspension or termination may not take place before the completion of the school year.
