When an applicant has not been granted the requested number of clock hours by a local continuing education/relicensure committee, an appeal may be made to the local committee. An applicant must appeal to the local committee within 20 working days after notification of the decision of the local committee. Failure to file a written request with the local committee for an appeal within 20 working days constitutes a waiver of the individual's right to appeal.
Decisions by a local committee for continuing education/relicensure denying the appeal may be appealed to the Professional Educator Licensing and Standards Board by the applicant according to part 8710.0900.
In cases where the applicant has not been granted the required number of clock hours for relicensure, local committees shall not endorse the application for renewal of the continuing license.
The Professional Educator Licensing and Standards Board shall extend the previous continuing license until all avenues of administrative appeal have been exhausted.
