The term “licensed personnel” means those employees required to possess professional teaching licenses issued by the Iowa Department of Education in order to hold their position as required by the Iowa Board of Educational Examiners or others with professional licenses.
Professional personnel will possess a license for the position they hold with the school district. The license will meet the requirements set out by the Iowa Board of Educational Examiners. Each licensed professional must present a copy of their current license to the superintendent [or designee] prior to employment.
It is solely the responsibility of the teacher to file and maintain a valid teaching license with the Human Resources department. No licensed professional will be employed or permitted to serve without a current and valid license.
If an employee is found not to be properly licensed for an assigned position, that individual may not serve in the assigned position or be compensated until proper licensure is documented.
