Guidelines and Standards for Proprietary Schools.
Georgia State Board of Education, Atlanta.
As provided in the Georgia Proprietary School Act, this guide contains information on the laws, regulations, and standards applying to proprietary schools operating in Georgia. "Proprietary school" under the law means any business enterprise operated for profit for the purpose of training, preparing, or improving a person for business, trade, technical, or industrial occupation. Section 1 of the guide explains the regulations' statutory basis and provides definitions of terms, exemptions from the law (including private kindergartens, elementary, and high schools), and procedures for getting the required certification of approval from the State Superintendent of Schools. Section 2 sets out the minimum standards for proprietary schools, in the form of a lengthy chart on which are listed 30 categories of standards, a self-evaluation checklist, and notations of exhibits required to be submitted to the superintendent. The chart includes state standards for school policies and procedures; curriculum, instruction, and academic requirements; facilities and equipment; personnel; records and financial resources; and advertisement and representation.
