§11. Approval of nonpublic schools by board

            A. The board shall adopt standards and guidelines which shall be applied in determining whether a nonpublic school applying for approval meets the requirements of a sustained curriculum or specialized course of study of quality at least equal to that prescribed for similar public schools. The board shall appoint an advisory committee of nonpublic school representatives, who shall advise and counsel with the board relative to standards and guidelines affecting these schools. After initial approval the board shall periodically determine whether the nonpublic school is maintaining such quality and if not, shall discontinue approval of the school.

            B. The board shall approve any nonpublic elementary or secondary school which makes application therefor on a form furnished by the board, if such school meets and maintains a sustained curriculum or specialized course of study of quality at least equal to that prescribed for similar public schools.

            C. All certificates and diplomas issued by an approved nonpublic school shall carry the same privileges as one issued by a state public school.
