The exchange program is ap- parently halted for the 2012-13 school year because paperwork had not been filed for recertifi- cation under a 2010 law that re- quires recertification every two years, Burford said. Now, the School District must complete a full certification process instead of recertification, and it will take too long for two Josai exchange students to attend Sweet Home High School this year. Monday evening, Supt. Don Schrader wanted to make it clear that the program is not canceled. "At no time was the program ever going to be canceled," he said. The district simply needs to complete the recertification pro- cess. The site visit came much faster than he expected, he said. "We thought it was going to be maybe 10 months from now." The visit went well, Schrader said. Schrader, Winslow and Bur- ford met with the investigator. See Josai, page 7
