7 Miss. Code. R. § 3-85.3 - Hearings on Plans
Current through April 7, 2022
When a plan submitted by a local educational agency is not approved by the Office of Career and Technical Education, the Office of Career and Technical Education shall notify the local educational agency of the deficiencies in the plan and allow thirty (30) days from the date of the notification letter to correct those deficiencies. However, upon good cause shown, the State Board of Education may extend this thirty (30) day period by written notification.
If at the end of thirty (30) days or the end of the extended period, whichever is applicable, the local educational agency has not corrected the deficiencies, the plan will be denied. The Associate State Superintendent for the Office of Career and Technical Education shall notify the local educational agency of this denial by certified mail and include in that letter the following:
The State Board shall designate an impartial hearing officer to conduct hearings on local plans. The hearing officer, after hearing all the evidence, shall present a written recommendation and a finding of facts to the State Board concerning the plan within fourteen (14) days after the conclusion of the hearing. Upon receipt of the transcript of the hearing, the State Board shall have thirty (30) days within which to make a determination upon the transcript and the recommendations and findings of facts of the hearing officer and to notify the local educational agency by certified mail of its decision. If any local educational agency is dissatisfied with the final action of the State Board, with respect to the approval of the plan, the local educational agency may within sixty (60) days after such final action or notice thereof, whichever is later, file with the U. S. Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals a petition for review of that action. A copy of the petition shall be forthwith transmitted by the clerk of the court to the State Board, and the State Board thereupon shall file in the court the record of the proceedings on which the State Board based its action as provided in Title 28 U.S. Code, Section 2112.
The findings of fact by the State Board, if supported by substantial evidence, shall be conclusive; but the court, for good cause shown, may remand a case to the State Board to take further evidence, and the State Board may thereupon make new or modified findings of fact and may modify its previous action and shall certify to the court the record of the further proceedings. The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals has jurisdiction to affirm the action of the State Board or to set it aside in whole or in part. The judgment of the Court shall be subject to review by the United States Supreme Court upon certiorari or certification as provided in Title 28 United States Code Section 1254.
