Current through Register Vol. 44, No. 12, December 15, 2021

A teacher employed to provide instruction under this chapter shall meet the following criteria:

(1) Eligibility. The teacher shall meet the standards and requirements set forth which other full-time instructors teaching within the academic department are required to meet and which are approved by the appropriate postsecondary administration. An individual under suspension or revocation of an educational license or statement of professional recognition issued by the board of educational examiners shall not be allowed to provide instruction for any program authorized by this chapter. If the instruction for any program authorized by this chapter is provided at a school district facility, an accredited nonpublic school facility, or a neutral site, the teacher or instructor shall have successfully passed a background investigation conducted in accordance with Iowa Code section 272.2(17) prior to providing such instruction. The background investigation also applies to a teacher or instructor who is employed by an eligible postsecondary institution if the teacher or instructor provides instruction under this chapter at a school district facility, an accredited nonpublic school facility, or a neutral site. For purposes of this rule, "neutral site" means a facility that is not owned or operated by an institution.

a. Collaborate, as appropriate, with other secondary or postsecondary faculty of the institution that employs the teacher regarding the subject area;
b. As assisted by the school district or accredited nonpublic school, provide ongoing communication about course expectations, teaching strategies, performance measures, resource materials used in the course, and academic progress to the student and, in the case of students of minor age, to the parent or guardian of the student;
c. Provide curriculum and instruction that are accepted as college-level work as determined by the institution;
