Senate File 59: Amends the License Requirement for Competent Private Instruction

Author:
Senator McKinley and Brunkhorst

Summary:
Amends section 299A.2 of the Iowa Code by striking the option for a teacher who provides competent private instruction to possess a certificate from the board of education examiners leaving as the only option for a teacher who provides competent instruction to obtain a license. This would affect not only those who provide instruction, but also those who will be able to supervise instruction because those supervisors who possess a certificate will no longer be qualified as a supervisory instructor.

The bill also strikes the requirement that the license must be appropriate to the ages and grade levels of the children to be taught.
