2020 Georgia Code
Title 20 - Education
Chapter 2 - Elementary and Secondary Education
Article 17 - Teachers and Other School Personnel
Part 10 - Professional Standards

Editor's notes.

- Because Ga. L. 1979, p. 1065, § 5 provided that the "Georgia Professional Standards Act" (enacted by Ga. L. 1976, p. 966) was to stand repealed June 30, 1982, that Act, as amended, was not originally included in this Code. However, Ga. L. 1982, p. 836, § 1 repealed the June 30, 1982, termination date for the "Georgia Professional Standards Act"; and that Act, as amended and otherwise revised, was codified at this part by Ga. L. 1982, p. 836, § 2.

Ga. L. 1998, p. 750, § 11, not codified by the General Assembly, provides that all cases pending before the Professional Practices Commission on June 30, 1998, shall be transferred to the Professional Standards Commission.
