Proposed Amendments to Part 405 (Payments for Certain Facilities under Section 14-7.05 of the School Code)
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). More than a dozen sets of the agency’s rules refer to “certification” in some manner. References to certification and related terms will need to be changed this set of rules to the licensure system, which will become effective July 1, 2013.
These proposed changes are being brought to the Board as a group since they contain technical changes only. In addition to modifications to the use of “certification” and related terms, one other change is being proposed in Section 405.40(a)(2)(C) to match this section to proposed amendments to Part 25 that the Board considered last month (i.e., the elimination of the short-term emergency approval on September 1, 2015). Staff will bring additional sets of rules to the Board over the next several months, as other modifications to those rules become necessary or as staff’s work load permits.
Initial Review by State Board of Education: January 2013
