14 DE Admin. Code 1582
The Professional Standards Board, acting in cooperation and consultation with the Department of Education, seeks the approval of the State Board of Education to amend 14 DE Admin. Code 1582 School Nurse. The proposed regulation amends the additional training requirement under subsection 4.1.4.
Notice of the proposed regulation was published in the Register of Regulations on May 1, 2016 in the form attached hereto as Exhibit "A". Persons who wished to present their views regarding the proposed regulation were invited to do so in writing by May 31, 2016. The Professional Standards Board received written comments from the Governor's Advisory Council for Exceptional Citizens and the State Council for Persons with Disabilities, asking the Professional Standards Board to reconsider subsection 6.2, which requires a district or charter school to verify that a School Nurse continues to meet the requirements of subsections 4.1.1 through 4.1.3. The Professional Standards Board considered the written comments and decided not to make any changes to the proposed regulation at this time. The Professional Standards Board believes that the proposed amendments are designed to improve the quality of the Delaware educator workforce and benefit the student population of the state.
The Professional Standards Board finds that it is appropriate to amend 14 DE Admin. Code 1582 School Nurse to amend the additional training requirement under subsection 4.1.4.
Therefore, pursuant to 14 Del.C. §1203, the regulation attached hereto as Exhibit "A" is hereby proposed subject to the approval of the State Board of Education. If approved by the State Board of Education, the proposed regulation will have the force and effect of law.
