View Amendment Current Amendment: 1 to Bill 3643 The Ways and Means Committee proposes the following Amendment No. 1 to H. 3643 (COUNCIL\AGM\18915BH11):

Reference is to the resolution as introduced.

Amend the joint resolution, as and if amended, by deleting all after the enacting words and inserting:

/ SECTION      1.      Notwithstanding Section 59-25-410, the boards of trustees of the several school districts shall decide and notify, in writing, the teachers, as defined in Section 59-1-130, in their employ concerning their employment for the 2011-2012 school year by May 15, 2011.

SECTION      2.      Notwithstanding Regulation 43-205.1, a continuing-contract teacher who is being recommended for formal evaluation the following school year must be notified in writing on or before the date the school district issues the written offer of employment or reemployment.

SECTION      3.      Notwithstanding Section 59-25-420, any teacher who is reemployed by written notification pursuant to Section 59-25-410 shall notify the board of trustees in writing of his acceptance of the contract for the 2011-2012 school year no later than ten days following receipt of written notification. Failure on the part of the teacher to notify the board of acceptance within the specified time limit is conclusive evidence of the teacher's rejection of the contract.

SECTION      4.      Notwithstanding another provision of law, school districts uniformly may negotiate salaries below the school district salary schedule for the 2011-2012 school year for retired teachers who are not participants in the Teacher and Employee Retention Incentive Program.

SECTION      5.      This joint resolution takes effect upon approval by the Governor. /
