Proposed Amendments for Part 30 (Programs for the Preparation of Principals in Illinois)
In March, the Board considered changes in Part 25 that address the process to be used to approve educator preparation providers and programs (see Subpart C of that rulemaking). Included in the proposed changes to Part 25 was a reorganization of Subpart C that shifted the requirements for program approval from Section 25.145 to Section 25.120. Since Part 30 refers to the process for educator preparation program approval, it needs to be updated to include the correct cross-reference.
An additional change is being proposed in Section 30.10 in order to broaden the type of staff available to mentor a principal candidate, provided that person assigned has the requisite experience, as stated in the definition, to meet the requirements to serve as a mentor.
