Bill Summaries:

  • Summary date: Apr 16 2019 - More information

    House committee substitute to the 1st edition makes the following changes.

    Requires the State Board of Education (State Board) to direct the Department of Public Instruction (DPI) to survey local school administrative units on the economic impact of potential salary grade and range revisions for the previously specified 20 transportation personnel positions. Requires the survey to determine the total salary for current employees under the potential salary grades and ranges, assuming that any employee who would receive a reduction in pay as a result of the revisions would continue at that employee's current salary, and compare the amount to the total salary of the same employees under the current salary grades and ranges. Now provides for the potential salary grades and ranges of the 20 previously specified personnel positions to be based on the ranges established by the State Human Resources Commission for the specified Generally Salary Schedule Grades, ranging from GN03 to GN018 (previously, directed the State Board to revise the salary grades and ranges for the 20 specified personnel positions, including positions reclassifed by the act, as described).

    Requires local boards to report the information for the survey to DPI by November 15, 2019. Requires DPI to compile the information to determine total costs, if any, of the salary grade and range revisions, and report to the specified NCGA committee and division by February 15, 2020.

    Eliminates the provision clarifying that an employee whose position is affected by the act will not receive a pay reduction due to a change in salary range provided the employee was employed in an affected position prior to the enactment of the act and the employee remains in the same position. 

    Changes the act's long title.


  • Summary date: Apr 9 2019 - More information

    Directs the State Board of Education (State Board) to reclassify ten specified Transportation Director positions to specified Assistant Director, Transportation Director, Senior Director, and Executive Director positions. Further directs the State Board to establish nine additional transportation personnel position classifications, based on existing positions, including Cost Clerk/Inventory Specialists, TIMS Data Managers, TIMS Coordinator, Receptionists/Office Support, Transportation Mech. Supv., and Transportation Coordinator, as specified. Additionally, directs the State Board to revise the salary grades and ranges for 20 specified personnel positions, including positions reclassifed by the act, based on the ranges established by the State Human Resources Commission for the specified Generally Salary Schedule Grades, ranging from GN03 to GN018.

    Clarifies that an employee whose position is affected by the act will not receive a pay reduction due to a change in salary range, provided the employee was employed in an affected position prior to the enactment of the act and the employee remains in the same position. 

    Effective July 1, 2019.
