Proposed Amendments to Part 29 (Standards for Administrative Certification Certification)
P.A. 97-607, effective August 26, 2011, changes the current system of teacher, administrator and school service personnel certification set forth in Article 21 of the School Code to a licensure system (Article 21B of the School Code). References to certification and related terms are being changed to align this set of rules to the licensure system, which became effective July 1, 2013.Additionally, acknowledgement is being made in Section 29.120 that the general administrative endorsement will no longer be issued starting September 1, 2014. The endorsement will be replaced by the principal endorsement; requirements for receipt of that endorsement are set forth in Part 30 (Programs for the Preparation of Principals in Illinois). Alignment also is being made between Parts 29 and 30 in that Part 29 will incorporate by reference the ISLLC 2008, Educational Leadership Policy Standards, adopted by the National Policy Board for Educational Administration that are set forth in Part 30.
