14 DE Admin. Code 545
The Secretary of Education seeks the consent of the State Board of Education to amend 14 DE Admin. Code 545 K to 12 School Counseling Programs. This regulation is amended to update the language to align with the new edition of the American School Counselor Association (ASCA) National Model.
Notice of the proposed regulation was published in the News Journal and the Delaware State News on August 1, 2015 in the form hereto attached as Exhibit "A". Comments were received from the State Council for Persons with Disabilities and the Governor's Advisory Council for Exceptional Citizens, which noted that charter schools were not included in this regulation. The Department of Education notes that charter schools have documented plans for addressing special needs, such as counseling, and such plans are updated every five years. The Department of Education does not believe it is necessary to change the regulation, as it would be redundant to require charter schools to create a separate school counseling plan given the detailed documentation (which addresses counseling as well as other issues) they are required to submit upon charter approval and during the application renewal process.
The Secretary finds that it is appropriate to amend 14 DE Admin. Code 545 K to 12 School Counseling Programs in order to update the language to align with the new edition of the American School Counselor Association (ASCA) National Model.
For the foregoing reasons, the Secretary concludes that it is appropriate to amend 14 DE Admin. Code 545 K to 12 School Counseling Programs. Therefore, pursuant to 14 Del.C. §122, 14 DE Admin. Code 545 K to 12 School Counseling Programs attached hereto as Exhibit "B" is hereby amended. Pursuant to the provision of 14 Del.C. §122(e), 14 DE Admin. Code 545 K to 12 School Counseling Programs 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 14 DE Admin. Code 545 K to 12 School Counseling Programs amended hereby shall be in the form attached hereto as Exhibit "B", and said regulation shall be cited as 14 DE Admin. Code 545 K to 12 School Counseling Programs in the Administrative Code of Regulations for the Department of Education.
The actions hereinabove referred to were taken by the Secretary pursuant to 14 Del.C. §122 on September 17, 2015. The effective date of this Order shall be ten (10) days from the date this Order is published in the Delaware Register of Regulations.
IT IS SO ORDERED the 17th day of September 2015.
Department of Education
Approved this 17th day of September 2015
