RULE §807.101Initial Training

(a) A school director shall complete the online training contained in the Director's Resource Guide or attend a Commission-sponsored workshop and demonstrate a proficiency of the knowledge required to operate a school before final Commission approval may be granted. The Commission may require a school director to retrain in order to maintain skills and continue as an approved school director.

(b) The school shall provide in-service training within the first three months of teaching to those instructors hired lacking teaching experience. In-service training includes planned professional development opportunities that enable inexperienced instructors to learn and develop effective teaching strategies and skills. Topics shall include competency-based training, instructional methods, adult learning styles, and student learning and skills assessment. Competency-based training specifies the skills and skill levels required to complete a training program, develops and organizes teaching and learning methods to enable students to achieve the identified skills and levels of proficiency, and uses criterion-referenced evaluation to measure achievement.
