SED offers an alternative accountability system for schools in which at least 50 percent of a school’s enrollment is comprised of students who transfer from other high schools or are students with disabilities. This Alternative Accountability System allows any school that meets one or more of these criteria to use supplementary performance indicators as an alternate means to demonstrate that the school should not be placed under registration review. Petitions to participate in the program during the 2005-2006 school year must be post-marked no later than March 14, 2006 for schools that meet the transfer rate criterion and April 28, 2006 for schools that meet the percentage of students with disabilities criterion.
