ACTIONS IN PARTICULAR CASES
CONSTITUTIONALLY BASED EDUCATIONAL CLAIMS ACT
6-2204. Responsibility for providing educational services required by the constitution. The legislature has established a system of public, free common schools by its authorization of the creation of or chartering of local school districts. Local school districts are hereby declared to have the primary responsibility for provision of constitutionally required educational services and for assuring themselves and the public that the local school districts are operating their schools as part of a general, uniform and thorough system of public, free common schools. When a local school district is unable to meet its responsibilities under this chapter because it does not provide constitutionally required educational services, this chapter provides judicial and administrative remedies to bring schools operated by the local school district into compliance with section 1, article IX, of the constitution of the state of Idaho and first prescribes local solutions where possible.
