It is important to clearly identify training hours used to qualify an individual as lead teacher. If you qualify the individual under 30-(3)-260-A-4 please be aware that the total number of training hours is 24 and those hours are to be completed within 6 months prior to beginning employment or being promoted and within 1 month after beginning lead teacher position. These training hours are to always be maintained in the staff record so that qualifications can be determined by the department. These training hours can take place on site but cannot be done while supervising children.
