(a) A district operating a Concept 6 program shall report each January to the Superintendent of Public Instruction, who shall report to the state board, on progress made in reaching the annual numerical goals established in its comprehensive action plan. If a district fails to meet an annual numerical goal, the district shall identify the specific cause of the failure and amend its comprehensive action plan to indicate the specific steps that it will take to remedy that failure so that it will meet its deadline to eliminate the Concept 6 program as stated in its comprehensive action plan.
(b) If the district's progress toward meeting its numerical goals has or is projected to change materially, the district shall file a supplemental, mid-year report with the Superintendent of Public Instruction. The report shall describe the nature and cause of the material change and indicate the specific steps that the district will take, and the state technical assistance needed, if any, to address the change. The superintendent shall evaluate the supplemental, mid-year report and make recommendations to the state board for approval or disapproval. The evaluation shall be based on the reasonableness and practicability of the district to reach its annual goals and eliminate the Concept 6 program by the earliest practicable date, and no later than July 1, 2012. If the state board disapproves a report, it shall specify the reasons for disapproval and require the district to submit a revised report, within a timeframe specified by the state board, to address the concerns raised by the state board.
