Rule Text

(d) School districts must ensure that no student or parent is provided any compensation, reimbursement, gift, reward, or gratuity related to the student's enrollment or participation in, or related to another student's recruitment or enrollment in, an alternative learning experience course or course work unless otherwise required by law. This prohibition includes, but is not limited to, funds provided to parents or students for the purchase of educational materials, supplies, experiences, services, or technological equipment.


The intent of this subsection is to prohibit any kind of financial transaction between the ALE program and the student and/or the student’s parent related to the courses identified in the WSLP.
