Iowa Board of Educational Examiners

News from the Iowa Board of Educational Examiners


Last summer the Board of Educational Examiners reviewed and discussed IAC 282-25.3(6), often referred to as the tutoring rule. After much discussion and many questions, the Board has decided not to make any rule changes, but would like to provide guidance on the definition of “solicitation”. At the October 1, 2010 board meeting the Board decided that this definition is key to understanding the intent of this rule. Solicit is defined by Merriam-Webster as to approach with a request or plea. During discussion at the October 1 board meeting examples of soliciting were shared. One was being in charge of a detassling crew. This would NOT be a violation, however, asking specific students to sign up for your team would be a violation and even announcing in class to “Join my detassling team” or passing out flyers during class could be considered soliciting.
