Upon receipt of the school board's assurance of compliance and the supporting data, the commissioner shall:
In order to determine whether special state aid shall be withheld, process the data and forward it to the commissioner of human rights, pursuant to Minnesota Statutes, section 124.15, subdivision 5a.
In order to determine whether a violation of federal laws prohibiting discrimination has occurred: within 90 days of the receipt of the data, the commissioner of education shall review it to determine whether a school district is in compliance with federal law prohibiting discrimination; if, after reviewing the data and finding what appears to be a violation of federal law, the commissioner shall make a prompt investigation; and if the investigation indicates noncompliance with federal law, the commissioner shall inform the school district. If the noncompliance cannot be resolved by informal means, the commissioner may proceed to suspend or terminate federal assistance.
