Section 30.60  Staffing Requirements

 

a)         At a minimum, each program shall allocate two faculty members on a full-time basis to the program if 100 candidates or fewer are enrolled on a part-time or a full-time basis, and one additional faculty member shall be allocated on a full-time basis for each increment of 50 or fewer candidates enrolled on a part-time or a full-time basis. 

 

1)         For the purposes of this subsection (a), "enrolled" means enrollment in one or more courses required for completion of the program. 

 

2)         A faculty member may include time spent teaching in other educational leadership programs (e.g., superintendent, chief school business official) offered by the institution when determining "full-time basis".

 

b)         No candidate shall receive more than one-third of his or her coursework from the same instructor.

 

c)         No more than 80 percent of the coursework in a program shall be taught by adjunct faculty.  For each adjunct faculty member employed, the program shall maintain evidence that the individual has demonstrated expertise in the area of his or her assignment.

 

d)         A faculty supervisor shall have no more than 36 candidates assigned to him or her during any one 12-month period of an internship.  However, when a university requires faculty to supervise at least 48 candidates in order to have a full course load, these faculty shall have no more than 48 candidates assigned to them. 

 

e)         No mentor shall have more than five candidates assigned to him or her at any period during the internship, except that the State Educator Preparation and Licensure Board (SEPLB) may make an exception for a sixth candidate if the SEPLB finds the explanation and accompanying documentation submitted by the program supports granting of the exception (i.e., there is only one qualified mentor available in sparsely populated areas of the State).  Approval under this subsection (e) is granted for the duration of the mentor's participation in the program and need not be renewed.

 

f)         Each full-time faculty member in the program and each faculty supervisor shall successfully complete the training and pass the assessment required for evaluation of licensed personnel under Section 24A-3 of the School Code.
