Excerpts from Florida Senate Bill – SB736 : Read it closely…. very closely


Excerpts from Florida Senate Bill – SB736

In the case of a layoff (expected with projected cuts), here are the rules – Teachers with high test scores stay. Now, I ask you,  if schools with ‘at-risk’ students have lower scores…won’t these teachers be the ones cut? Well, that is some thank you for teaching the students with the highest needs…

Here is the bill. Read for yourself:

(5) If workforce reduction is needed, a district school

1127  board must retain employees at a school or in the school

1128  district based upon educational program needs and the

1129  performance evaluations of employees within the affected program

1130  areas. Within the program areas requiring reduction, the

1131  employee with the lowest performance evaluations must be the

1132  first to be released; the employee with the next lowest

1133  performance evaluations must be the second to be released; and

1134  reductions shall continue in like manner until the needed number

1135  of reductions has occurred. A district school board may not

1136  prioritize retention of employees based upon seniority.
