Assurance of Compliance and Mandated Reporting
All school districts must complete the Assurance of Compliance with state and federal law and verify Mandated Reporting training by November 15 each year.
By completing all sections of the Assurance of Compliance and Mandated Reporting, school districts provide written assurance that they do not discriminate in their use of funds provided through the Minnesota Department of Education and that they have informed all mandated reporters of their reporting duties.
This assurance is given by each district in consideration of and for the purpose of obtaining any and all federal grants, loans, contracts, property, discounts, or other federal and state financial assistance extended to the district by the U.S. Department of Education and the Minnesota Department of Education (MDE), including installment payments after such date of application for federal financial assistance and state aid allotments which were approved before such date.
By submitting the Assurance of Compliance, the district recognizes and agrees that such federal and state financial assistance will be extended in reliance on the representations, supporting information required by Minnesota Statutes, section 127A.42, subdivision 3, and agreements made in this assurance. This assurance is binding on the district and the persons who are authorized to submit information on behalf of the district.
Please note that you can now provide the entire assurance online. We no longer require the paper copy of the Assurance of Compliance certificate. However, it is important to note that by submitting the Assurance of Compliance online that you are verifying that the Superintendent is electronically signing this assurance on behalf of the school board. Though the paper copy is no longer required, the approval of the board is per Minnesota Rule 3535.9910.
