Approval Process

Update on Renewing Evaluator Approval - During the summer, members of the Board of Educational Examiners and the Department of Education met to discuss "Evaluator Approval" options in the wake of the pending recommendations (i.e., teaching/leadership standards and evaluation process/tools) from the Council on Educator Development.

In the interim, an administrator and/or evaluator seeking renewal of his/her evaluator approval license has three options:

Option 1: Take iEvaluate 1.2 through AEA PD Online for two licensure renewal credits.
OR
Option 2: Take Assessing Academic Rigor as offered through your AEA for two licensure renewal credits.
OR
Option 3: Take Fierce Conversations as offered through your AEA for two licensure renewal credits.
 
If you are new to Iowa or were prepared at an out-of-state preparation institution and seeking your Iowa administrator license, you must take iEvaluate 1.2 through AEA PD Online.
 
For any additional administrator/evaluator licensure questions, please contact Greg Horstmann (greg.horstmann@iowa.gov). For evaluator course information, please contact Matt Ludwig (matt.ludwig@iowa.gov).
