14 DE Admin. Code 1583
The Professional Standards Board, acting in cooperation and consultation with the Department of Education, seeks the consent of the State Board of Education to amend 14 DE Admin. Code 1583 School Psychologist. Amendments were made to clean up language involving specialist programs. This regulation sets forth the requirements for a School Psychologist.
Notice of the proposed amendment of the regulation was published in the Delaware Register of Regulations on October 1, 2015 in the form hereto attached as Exhibit "A". The notice invited written comments. Public comments were received from the Governor's Advisory Council for Exceptional Citizens and the State Council for Persons with Disabilities that both endorsed the proposed changes to the regulation. The proposed change that was suggested was considered by the Professional Standards Board, but no change was made at this time.
For the foregoing reasons, the Professional Standards Board and the State Board of Education conclude that it is appropriate to amend the regulation. Therefore, pursuant to 14 Del.C. §1205(b), the regulation attached hereto as Exhibit "B" is hereby amended. Pursuant to the provision of 14 Del.C. §122(e), the regulation hereby amended shall be in effect for a period of five years from the effective date of this order as set forth in Section V. below.
The text of the regulation amended shall be in the form attached hereto as Exhibit "B", and said regulation shall be cited as 14 DE Admin. Code 1583 of the Administrative Code of Regulations of the Department of Education.
