Education: Elementary and Secondary
Direct Aid To Public Education FY2013 $1,050,000 FY2014 $0 GF

Page 97, line 15, strike "$5,706,719,879" and insert "$5,707,769,879".
Page 123, strike lines 6 through 8, and insert:
"Out of this appropriation, $1,050,000 the first year from the general fund shall be used to provide competitive grants to school divisions to pilot models for awarding performance pay for instructional personnel in hard-to-staff schools as determined by the Department of Education, pursuant to grant proposals submitted pursuant to Item 132 C.34. Performance Pay Pilots, Chapter 890, 2011 Session."

(This amendment reflects funding for the $5,000 incentive payments for the teachers in the schools participating in the 2011-12 Performance Pay Pilot. Due to the timing of the performance measures, the awards would be paid in FY 2013, rather than in FY 2012. State costs for the pilot are not expected to exceed $1,050,000. A total of 25 eligible "hard-to-staff" schools elected to participate, with nine supported by the state funds and the remainder supported by federal school improvement grant funds. A companion amendment to the caboose bill removes the $3 million originally appropriated for the pilot.)
