Ga. Comp. R. & Regs. R. 506-3-.04 - Consultative Services

Current through Rules and Regulations filed through April 4, 2022

(1) General. As part of its duty to maintain high standards for the teaching profession in Georgia, the Commission provides consultative services and technical assistance. Any citizen of this State may request such services and assistance, though the Commission will determine, based upon the nature of the request, the response that it shall provide. The consultative services and technical assistance will be performed by the Executive Director and the staff of the Commission under the direction of the Executive Director. The Commission does not view opinions expressed by the Executive Director and its staff as binding on it.
(2) Content of Requests. A person seeking consultative services or technical assistance shall send a letter or other written communication clearly entitled "Request for Consultative Services" or "Request for Technical Assistance" to the Executive Director of the Professional Practices Commission, Suite 2010, building 20, Executive Park West, N.E., Atlanta, Georgia 30329, providing the following: the name, address, and capacity (teacher, administrator, board member, or citizen) of the person requesting the services; a concise statement of the facts giving phone numbers of persons who may provide additional information; a statement whether the facts giving rise to the request are the subject of any disciplinary action, complaint, lawsuit, administrative case or other contested action in any tribunal and the description of such action; and the signature of the person requesting the services.
(3) Request for Services Not a Complaint Procedure. This procedure is not in any way to be construed as a compliant process. It is anticipated that consultative services and technical assistance will be requested before any questioned action is taken so that the Commission may provide guidance.
