Chief Patron: Colgan
Temporary Staffing Flexibility for School Divisions (language only)

Item 132 #5s

Item 132 #5s

Education: Elementary and Secondary
Direct Aid To Public Education

Page 81, after line 4, insert: "g. To provide temporary flexibility, notwithstanding other requirements in this Item, if necessary, school divisions may staff at levels that are one higher, in the case of class size ratios, or one lower, in the case of FTEs per 1,000 students, than each of the minimum required staffing levels as currently set out in the Code of Virginia."

(This amendment provides temporary staffing flexibility for school divisions in light of general fund reductions to Direct Aid to localities to Public Education and local revenue shortfalls.)
