The Professional Standards Board, acting in cooperation and collaboration with the Department of Education, seeks the approval of the State Board of Education to repeal 14 DE Admin. Code §310 Certification Administrative Supervisor/Reading Coordinator. It is necessary to repeal this regulation as the requirements for administrative supervisor are incorporated into 14 DE Admin. Code §1531, thereby making regulation §310 unnecessary.
