406.3 Licensed Employee Continued Education Credit

Continued education on the part of licensed employees may entitle them to advancement on the salary schedule. Licensed employees who have completed additional hours will be considered for advancement on the salary schedule. The superintendent will determine which licensed employees will advance on the salary schedule for continued education keeping in mind the financial condition of the school district, the education and experience of the licensed employee, the educational philosophy of the school district, and any other items deemed relevant by the board.
Licensed employees who wish to obtain additional education for advancement on the salary schedule must notify superintendent within 15 days after the beginning of the fall semester. This additional education must be in the same area as the education that was required of the employee to hold the employee's current position with the school district. For purposes of illustration only, a math teacher would advance on the salary schedule only if the additional education was in math courses or in courses related to general teaching strategies which could be applied to math. The superintendent has the discretion to approve credit outside the employee's area of endorsement or responsibility.
It is the responsibility of the superintendent to make a recommendation to the board for the advancement of a licensed employee.
