s 80556.1. Professional Growth Advisor for Service and Specialist
Credentials.


(a) The chief administrative officer (or designee) of a public agency,
some of whose employees are required to hold valid specialist or service
credentials, may designate one or more persons to be professional growth
advisors. However, the credential holder is responsible for selecting an
appropriate advisor. Subject matter compatibility, interest in special
topics, interactive skills, proximity of the advisor and advisor workload
should be considered by the credential holder when selecting an advisor.
Holders of credentials requiring prerequisite credentials may choose more
than one advisor when more than one type of professional clear credential
is being renewed.

(b) Eligibility to be a professional growth advisor for service or
specialist credential holders requires satisfaction of one of the
following:

(1) The advisor holds a valid (clear or professional clear)
specialist or services credential, and a baccalaureate degree from
an accredited institution of postsecondary education.


(2) Those who instruct in the area of expertise in an approved
credential program at the postsecondary level may serve as
professional growth advisors.


(3) Alternatively, the professional service or specialist
credential holder may choose an advisor in the area of his or her
teaching credential provided that the provisions of Section 80556
have been met.


(c) An agency which employs holders of professional clear service and
specialist credentials may appoint a professional growth panel(s) to act
as an appeal body to resolve disputes between credential holders and
professional growth advisors. The panel may also participate in selecting
orienting and assisting professional growth advisors.

(d) The responsibilities of a professional growth advisor shall be as
follows:

(1) Know the contents of the pertinent sections of this article of
Title 5 California Code of Regulations pertaining to professional
growth requirements for service and specialist credentials and
provide for a discussion of these with credential holders. The
professional growth advisor shall discuss the staff development
needs of the employing agency and/or the school with the credential
holder and may suggest activities and/or domains of activities.


(2) The advisor shall provide consultation in the selection of
activities as well as discuss what has been gained from
participation in those activities.


(e) A public agency whose employees are required to hold valid service or
specialist credentials shall give each credential holder the names and
work locations of any professional growth advisors who have been
designated by the agency for these credential areas.

(f) No credential holder may serve as his or her own professional growth
advisor.

(g) No person or agency shall compel a credential holder to pay any fee or
provide any service in exchange for professional growth advice, or for
approval of a professional growth plan or record.

(h) The chief administrative officer, or his or her designee, of a public
or private employing agency shall have the authority to remove any
professional growth advisor who has been determined by the agency or the
Commission to have willfully and arbitrarily violated Education Code
Section 44277 or this article.
