(This amendment provides funding for teachers qualifying for the National Board of Professional Teaching Standards certification in the 2002-04 biennium. Current projections assume that 137 teachers will be eligible for continuing awards of $2,500 in fiscal year 2003 while 138 teachers will become eligible for the first time grant of $5,000. In fiscal year 2004, it has been projected that 275 teachers will be eligible to receive the continuation grant of $2,500 with 198 newly eligible teachers for the $5,000 grant. If these projections are accurate, the first year awards would be made in total, however, the second year awards would have to be pro-rated.)
