Reductions in force for teachers would focus on evaluation, rather than the current last-in, first-out practice.
Evaluations for teachers would be required every year.
- 50% of evaluation must be from student performance.
Requires each school district and ESC board to annually adopt a teachers' salary schedule, based on:
- Teacher’s level of licensure;
- Whether “highly qualified”;
- Evaluation ratings.
Must determine each teacher’s salary within the appropriate salary schedule range.
- Students up to age 29 w/o diploma or GED could enroll.
- No sponsor needed for community schools.
- Repeal current law restricting poor performing charters from opening new schools.
The increase in the number of students taking vouchers or attending charter schools would continue to be funded through deductions from school district state funding.
Authorizes “entities” and “groups of individuals” to form community schools and authorizes a community school to be established as a for-profit corporation or LLC.
Removes the governor’s proposal that prohibited a community school sponsor with one or more schools in AW or AE from expanding.
Eliminates caps on the total number of community schools a sponsor can operate.
Give for-profit companies the ability to use tax dollars to open unlimited numbers of community schools without disclosing how public funds are spent and without oversight from sponsors as now required.
