Concise explanation of the particular statutory provisions under which the rule is enacted and how these provisions authorize or require the rule:

Section 53A-6-104 requires the Utah State Board of Education to make rules requiring participation in professional development activities in order for educators to retain Utah licensure, and Subsection 53A-1-401(3) permits the Utah State Board of Education to adopt rules in accordance with its responsibilities.

Summary of written comments received during and since the last five-year review of the rule from interested persons supporting or opposing the rule:

No written comment has been received.

Reasoned justification for continuation of the rule, including reasons why the agency disagrees with comments in opposition to the rule, if any:

This rule continues to be necessary because it provides the procedures and guidance for Utah educators when acquiring professional development as necessary under state law so that an educator can retain educator licensure upon renewal of an educator license. Therefore, this rule should be continued.
