Amends Section 8.3(a), SL 2018-5, which provides a schedule for principal bonuses ranging from $1,000 to $10,000 for the 2018-19 fiscal year based on the statewide percentage growth of the school during the previous year, up to the top 50% of school growth. Further, the law qualifies eligible principals for twice the bonus amount if the principal supervised a school with an overall performance grade of D or F for the majority of the 2017-18 school year. Expands the qualifications for the double bonus to eligible principals who supervised a school with an overall school performance grade of D or F for a majority of the 2016-17 school year so long as the principal also supervised the school for a majority of the 2017-18 school year.
Deems a bonus provided under this provision to be an additional payment of the bonus the principal received pursuant to Section 8.3, SL 2018-5, and not a new, separate, or second bonus under that provision. Requires bonus payments be paid by the Department of Public Instruction no later than May 31, 2019, to qualifying principals employed as of October 1, 2018.
