122A.21 Teachers' and administrators' licenses; fees.
Each application for the issuance, renewal, or extension of a license to teach must be accompanied by a processing fee in an amount set by the board of teaching by rule. Each application for the issuance, renewal, or extension of a license as supervisory personnel must be accompanied by a processing fee in an amount set by the state board of education by rule. The processing fee for a teacher's license must be paid to the executive secretary of the board of teaching. The processing fee for the licenses of supervisory personnel must be paid to the commissioner. The executive secretary of the board of teaching and the commissioner shall deposit the fees with the state treasurer, as provided by law, and report each month to the commissioner of finance the amount of fees collected. The fees as set by the boards are nonrefundable for applicants not qualifying for a license. However, a fee must be refunded by the state treasurer in any case in which the applicant already holds a valid unexpired license. The boards may waive or reduce fees for applicants who apply at the same time for more than one license, even if the licenses are under the jurisdiction of different boards.
