Subpart 1.

Protocol.

A.

Each school is subject to inspection at any time the board deems it necessary to affirm compliance.

B.

Board inspectors must carry board-issued photo identification.

Violations and orders to comply.

A.

The board must notify schools with a written inspection report when any violation is found during a board inspection.

for each violation that was not immediately corrected or not corrected within ten days, provide a written explanation of the reasons for the delay, the specific steps the licensee will take to correct the violation, and the projected date the outstanding violation will be corrected. The board shall grant extensions requested in writing when the health and safety of the students and the public is not at immediate risk, and when the delay is warranted based on the information provided by the school.
