Licensed employees, including administrators, are those employees required to hold an appropriate license from the Iowa Department of Education for their position as required by the Board of Educational Examiners or others with professional licenses.  Licenses required for a position will be considered met if the employee meets the requirements established by the Iowa Department of Education.

It shall be the responsibility of the superintendent to establish job expectations for licensed employees' positions, other than the position of the superintendent.  Job expectations may be approved by the board.

Licensed employees must present evidence of current license to the Human Resource Coordinator prior to payment of salary each year.
