A school district seeking exemption from specific statutes and regulations shall apply to the State Board of Education. The application must include the specific statute or regulation of which the district seeks exemption, the duration of the desired exemption, specific justification for the exemption, and an evaluation component designed to document the success of the exemption, including provisions for suspension of the exemption should the evaluation denote lack of success. Submission of the application must be made to the State Board of Education by the chair of the district board of trustees, the superintendent of the district, and the principals of the affected schools, as appropriate. An application submitted pursuant to the provisions of this section must be approved by the State Board of Education, but in no case may the board grant exemption from state statute or regulation for four year old education programs.
