Regulatory Flexibility Act Form

Authenticated PDF Version

The Professional Standards Board ("Board"), acting in cooperation and consultation with the Department of Education ("Department"), developed a new regulation, 14 DE Admin. Code 1515 Hearing Procedures and Rules. The regulation concerns the hearing procedures and rules for license denial actions under 14 Del.C. §1217 and license disciplinary actions under 14 Del.C. §1218. The proposed regulation was initially published on October 1, 2017. The Board received one written comment that subsection 3.1.2 does not seem to align with modern technology or to be the most efficient, non-burdensome form of communicating a hearing request. The Board believes that the forms of hearing request are those permitted by statute, so no changes were made in response to the comment. On November 2, 2017, the Board voted to republish the regulation with two substantive changes. The Board added a deadline for submitting a written request for additional time for a hearing to subsection and added "stenographic" to subsection 4.5.2.
1.1 This regulation shall apply to license denial actions under 14 Del.C. §1217 and license disciplinary actions under 14 Del.C. §1218.
The following words and terms, when used in this regulation, shall have the following meaning unless the context clearly indicates otherwise:
"Department" means the Delaware Department of Education.
"Executive Director" means the Executive Director of the Delaware Professional Standards Board.
"Secretary" means the Secretary of the Delaware Department of Education.
"Standards Board" means the Delaware Professional Standards Board established pursuant to 14 Del.C. §1201 or its designee. If a party believes that the presentation of the party’s case cannot reasonably be accomplished in one half of the allotted time or less, then the party may mail or hand-deliver a written request for additional time to the Executive Director within 10 days of receipt of the notice of hearing. The request shall specify the reasons for the request. The party shall provide a copy of the request to the other party at the same time.
7.1.1 Pursuant to 29 Del.C. §10129, no member or employee of the Standards Board assigned to participate in any way in the rendering of a case decision shall discuss or communicate, directly or indirectly, respecting any issue of fact or law with any person or party, except upon notice to and opportunity for all parties to participate.
