(This amendment restores the amounts of the initial and continuation bonuses to teachers based on their achievement of national board certification to $5,000 and $2,500, rather than reduced amounts of $3,000 and $1,000, respectively. A separate amendment makes a technical adjustment based on the Department of Education's estimates of the number of teachers that will be eligible.)
