Repeals SL 2014-100, Section 9.1(d), which provided that instead of providing annual longevity payments to teachers paid on the salary schedule, the amounts of those longevity payments are built into the salary schedule. Sets annual longevity payments for teachers (including instructional support personnel) at 1.5% of base salary for 10 to 14 years of State service, 2.25% of base salary for 15 to 19 years of State service, 3.25% of base salary for 20 to 24 years of State service, and 4.5% of base salary for 25 or more years of State service, to be paid in a lump sum once a year. Applies to the teacher salary schedule enacted for the 2019-20 and subsequent fiscal years.
Appropriates $110,100,000 in recurring funds from the General Fund to the Department of Public Instruction to restore longevity pay.
Effective July 1, 2019.
