HB 164 -- Salary Schedules for Public School Teachers

Sponsor:  Troupe

This bill offers salary schedule credit to public school
teachers who change employment to another Missouri school
district under guidelines specified in the bill.  Beginning with
the 2001-2002 school year, teachers who have been employed for a
year or more will receive credit for each year of service up to
5 years if they take a position in another district.  Each
school year thereafter, the maximum years credited will increase
in increments of one year, culminating in up to 10 years of
credit in the 2006-2007 school year.  School districts may offer
credit for service in excess of this schedule.

The bill also specifies that should the court ultimately decide
that the revenue limitations of article X, section 16 of the
constitution apply to this section, necessary funds would be
appropriated from the State Lottery Fund or the General Revenue
