Adopted and Filed Emergency After Notice

Rule making related to temporary initial license

The Educational Examiners Board hereby amends Chapter 13, "Issuance of Teacher Licenses and Endorsements," Iowa Administrative Code.

Legal Authority for Rule Making

This rule making is adopted under the authority provided in Iowa Code section 272.2.

State or Federal Law Implemented

This rule making implements, in whole or in part, Iowa Code section 272.2 and 2019 Iowa Acts, Senate File 159.

Purpose and Summary

This amendment is intended to implement 2019 Iowa Acts, Senate File 159, which directs the Iowa Board of Educational Examiners to adopt rules to create a nonrenewable initial one-year license for applicants who have met all licensure requirements with the exception of a passing score on the required assessments.

Public Comment and Changes to Rule Making

Notice of Intended Action for this rule making was published in the Iowa Administrative Bulletin on June 19, 2019, as ARC 4502C. A public hearing was held on July 10, 2019, at 1 p.m.in Room 3 Southwest, Grimes State Office Building, Des Moines, Iowa. No one attended the public hearing. No public comments were received. No changes from the Notice have been made.

Reason for Waiver of Normal Effective Date

Pursuant to Iowa Code section 17A.5(2)"b"(1)(b), the Board finds that the normal effective date of this rule making, 35 days after publication, should be waived and the rule making made effective on August 7, 2019, because the rule confers a benefit by allowing license candidates who have completed all requirements except a passing score on the required assessments to receive the newly created license in time for the upcoming 2019-2020 school year. This will confer a benefit on the potential license holders, as well as their potential employers.

Jobs Impact
