AN ACT TO MAKE CHANGES TO TEACHER LICENSURE REQUIREMENTS AND TO EXTEND AND EXPAND THE PROGRAM TO ALLOW RETIRED EDUCATORS TO RETURN TO WORK IN HIGH-NEED SCHOOLS.
House committee substitute amends the 2nd edition as follows.
Amends GS 115C-270.20(a)(5), which sets forth requirements for a residency license (class of teacher license), to refer to the governing board of a public school unit requesting the license rather than a local board of education. Applies beginning with applications submitted on or after the date the act becomes law.
Revises the proposed changes to GS 115C-302.4, amending the second of the two criteria set forth in the definition of high-need retired teacher, to include reemployment by a local board of education as an instructional support personnel exclusively at a high-need school or schools, or reemployment by the Innovative School District as a teacher employed on an annual contract for a term of no more than one school year as a school principal for an innovative school (was limited to reemployment by a local board as a teacher employed on an annual contract to provide classroom instruction exclusively at a high-need school or schools). Amends the proposed definition for school personnel to include licensed personnel classified as a principal. Expands the modified compensation set forth for high-need retired teachers, adding to the teacher salary schedule to set the salary of high-need retired teachers serving as the school principal of an innovative school at the base salary for a principal of a school with an average daily membership of 400 or less. Makes conforming changes.
Makes conforming changes to GS 135-3(8)g., regarding the exclusion of earnings of a beneficiary of the Teachers' and State Employees' Retirement System while employed as a high-need retired teacher. Makes related conforming changes to Section 5 of SL 2019-110, as amended, regarding the prohibition against high-need retired teachers accruing any additional benefits under GS 135-3(8).
