The Minnesota Nonpublic Education Council is scheduled to meet four times during the 2012-13 academic year at the Minnesota Department of Education (MDE), 1500 Highway 36 West, Roseville, Minnesota, 55113. Meetings are open to the public. Meetings will be held:
The Nonpublic Education Council is a link between nonpublic education in Minnesota and MDE. The council is established in Minnesota Statutes, section 123B.445. Members are appointed by the Commissioner of Education. The council’s work includes recognizing accrediting agencies in order to exempt accredited nonpublic schools from some of the reporting requirements of Minnesota’s Compulsory Instruction law. The council also hears appeals from nonpublic schools when disagreements arise concerning Aids to Nonpublic Students.
Further, the council is a forum for discussion of how Minnesota laws and policies impact nonpublic education.
