Proposed Amendments to Part 565 (Class Size Reduction Grants)
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 to align this set of rules to the licensure system, which will become effective July 1, 2013.
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
