It is the intent of the Professional Practices Commission that the standards set forth in this Chapter shall apply to those who teach in classrooms and those who supervise and provide administrative services and provide administrative services to those who teach in classrooms. Professional reviewers appointed by the Commission shall review professional performance and form opinions of the quality of professional service rendered. The reviewers shall relate such opinions by sworn testimony before the Commission in any hearing where professional competency is an issue provided that reviewers qualify as expert witnesses before the Commission. Testimony therefrom shall be based on the standards included in this Chapter. No finding of professional incompetency shall be made except where a preponderance of evidence exists of such incompetency. Professional reviewers, upon proper request as authorized by law, may be appointed by the Executive Director of the Commission to review professional performance and form opinions of the quality of professional service rendered and make corrective recommendations. Such professional reviews shall be conducted for the sole purpose of remediating professional performance to improve the quality of education.</td> </tr> </table> <table border="0" width="100%" cellspacing="4" cellpadding="4"> <tr> <td valign="top" width="1%" style="white-space:nowrap;text-align:left;width:18px;"><a style="white-space:nowrap;" name="506-4-.01(2)">(2)</a></td> <td valign="top" style="text-align:left" class="leftalign"><B>Supplementary Definitions.</B> In an effort to promote understanding and consistency within the provisions of this Chapter, in addition to the definitions provide in Chapter 1 of these Rules, the following words and terms, when used in this Chapter, shall have the following meanings: <table border="0" width="100%" cellspacing="4" cellpadding="4"> <tr> <td valign="top" width="1%" style="white-space:nowrap;text-align:left;width:18px;"><a style="white-space:nowrap;" name="506-4-.01(2)(a)">(a)</a></td> <td valign="top" style="text-align:left" class="leftalign"><B>Administrative.</B> Pertaining to the execution, application or management of persons or things.</td> </tr> </table> <table border="0" width="100%" cellspacing="4" cellpadding="4"> <tr> <td valign="top" width="1%" style="white-space:nowrap;text-align:left;width:18px;"><a style="white-space:nowrap;" name="506-4-.01(2)(b)">(b)</a></td> <td valign="top" style="text-align:left" class="leftalign"><B>Appeal.</B> A request for a nonjudicial review of an action related to grievances, complaints, conditions or situations.</td> </tr> </table> <table border="0" width="100%" cellspacing="4" cellpadding="4"> <tr> <td valign="top" width="1%" style="white-space:nowrap;text-align:left;width:18px;"><a style="white-space:nowrap;" name="506-4-.01(2)(c)">(c)</a></td> <td valign="top" style="text-align:left" class="leftalign"><B>Available.</B> That which can be used or obtained.</td> </tr> </table> <table border="0" width="100%" cellspacing="4" cellpadding="4"> <tr> <td valign="top" width="1%" style="white-space:nowrap;text-align:left;width:18px;"><a style="white-space:nowrap;" name="506-4-.01(2)(d)">(d)</a></td> <td valign="top" style="text-align:left" class="leftalign"><B>Certificate, Certified, Certification.</B> These terms and similar terms are references to the certificate issued by the Professional Standards Commission to Certified Personnel as defined below.</td> </tr> </table> <table border="0" width="100%" cellspacing="4" cellpadding="4"> <tr> <td valign="top" width="1%" style="white-space:nowrap;text-align:left;width:18px;"><a style="white-space:nowrap;" name="506-4-.01(2)(e)">(e)</a></td> <td valign="top" style="text-align:left" class="leftalign"><B>Certified Personnel.</B> These positions required to be certified by the implementation of the provisions of O.C.G.A.
