Teacher salaries for critical shortage area teachers. Provides that, in order to assure the availability of highly qualified teachers in high-demand subject areas, the local school boards shall adjust their teacher salary schedules to provide for greater compensation for personnel who teach in a critical shortage area or discipline, as identified by the Board of Education's Regulations Governing the Determination of Critical Shortage Areas, than in areas in which there is no shortage of highly qualified teachers. The measure further provides that no teacher salary schedule adopted by a local school board shall establish a maximum salary that can be earned by teachers in a school division. Read the Bill »
