Section 16-9-10Certificate of administration and supervision.
Any person possessing the qualifications prescribed by law for a certificate of administration and supervision required as a qualification of a county superintendent of education shall be entitled to have a certificate signed by the State Superintendent of Education showing such qualifications upon application in writing on blanks prescribed by the State Board of Education and the submission of satisfactory proof showing that he is entitled to the same. It shall be the duty of the State Superintendent of Education, where a person is qualified to receive such certificate and has complied with the provision of law relative to securing same, to forthwith issue the same. In the event the State Superintendent of Education when it is his duty to do so fails to issue such certificate within two weeks and there is no good reason for such failure, he shall be subject to a penalty of $250.00 to be recovered for the benefit of the person entitled to such certificate in a suit by such person in the Circuit Court of Montgomery County.
