(This amendment provides $2.6 million the first year and $2.5 million the second year from the general fund to increase the current school nurse hourly rate of $23.44 to $25.00. During the rebenchmarking cycle, the prevailing school nurse hourly rate was increased from $22.10 to $23.44, or 6.1 percent. This proposed rate increase would provide an total increase of 13.2 percent from two years ago.)
