14 DE Admin. Code 915
I. Summary of the Evidence and Information Submitted
The Secretary of Education seeks the consent of the State Board of Education to amend 14 DE Admin. Code 915 James H. Groves High School. This regulation clarifies 14 DE Admin. Code 505 High School Graduation Requirements and Diplomas with regard to the World Languages credit requirement and provides other minor clarifications. This regulation also clarifies that the Groves In School Credit Program cannot occur during the school’s regularly scheduled school day.
Notice of the proposed regulation was published in the News Journal and the Delaware State News on November 3, 2014, in the form hereto attached as Exhibit “A”. Comments were received from Governor’s Advisory Council for Exceptional Citizens and the State Council for Persons with Disabilities. Comments were received relative to students in the In School Credit Program not receiving instruction during the school’s regularly scheduled school day. This was intentional. The In School Credit program is funded and designed to supplement the instruction provided to students during the day. Another comment related to conditions of admittance to the James H. Groves High School with regard to a pending or actual expulsion for a nonviolent act was received. There are provisions in the regulation that permit students who have committed both nonviolent and violent crimes to participate in a James H. Groves High School Program.
