HB 1224 -- Minimum Teacher Salaries

Co-Sponsors:  Schilling, Murray

This bill raises the minimum teacher salary from the current
$18,000 to $20,000 for school year 2001-2002 and to $21,000 for
school year 2002-2003.  For a teacher with a master's degree and
10 years' experience, the minimum salary is raised from $24,000
to $26,000 in school year 2001-2002 and to $27,000 in school
year 2002-2003.  Career ladder payments are excluded from the
definition of salary.

The bill also revises the qualifications for districts to
receive moneys from the Excellence in Education Fund to meet
minimum salary levels.  Currently, districts may receive such
funds after qualifying on 7 criteria and only for a period of 3
years.  The bill removes the time limit on receipt of funds and
substitutes 3 criteria:  (1)  no increase in any voluntary
property tax rollback; (2)  compliance with certificated staff
compliance ratios before the minimum salary payment is added to
the compliance ratio; and (3)  completion of transfers from the
incidental fund to the capital projects or debt service funds in
compliance with law.  Financially distressed districts are
exempt from the above criteria and must comply with the statutes
governing financially distressed districts and operate with an
approved budget and education plan to qualify.
