05-071 C.M.R. ch. 237, § 2 - Local Requirements for "Live or Outside Work"

Current through 2022-14, April 6, 2022

When conducting live work or bringing school-based enterprise projects into the curriculum, schools must work with the local program advisory committees. Schools must obtain support and leadership from the business community to avoid any unreasonable negative impact on private business. Together they should establish a formal process for problem solving and dispute resolution, and develop accountability systems that can measure and evaluate the operation, effectiveness, and business and community roles of these enterprises and activities.

A. All vocational education programs, school-to-work programs and school-based enterprises that are at least in part funded by Federal or State funds must have a program advisory committee with broad representation of business and industry, to include the full range of sizes of the businesses in the area. The majority of members of the program advisory committee must come from the private sector.
B. All vocational education programs, school-to-work programs and school-based enterprises that are at least in part funded by Federal or State funds must have a live work policy in place. An established live work policy will:
1. insure that all expenditures and receipts are thoroughly accounted for
2. include a local grievance procedure
3. state that work will be accepted in a manner that will best enhance the present learning objectives of the students
4. identify in writing who may qualify to request/receive live work products or services
C. The appropriate program advisory committee and the governing board of the schools must approve each live work policy.
D. Policies and procedures for administering "live work" must be filed with the Maine Department of Education for its review to assure compliance with this rule. Any amendments to such policies and procedures are also subject to Department of Education review.
E. Annually the program advisory committees and the governing boards must review the live work policies and send evidence of this review to the Maine Department of Education.
