On Wednesday, the House revealed its teacher quality reform proposal as a proposed committee bill from the K-20 Competitiveness Subcommittee. The bill is substantially similar to the proposal filed in the Senate, S.B. 736 by Sen. Stephen Wise. Among other provisions, the proposal: requires teachers and principals to be rated among four levels of performance; shifts teacher and principal evaluations from being "primarily based on performance" to at least 50-percent based on student growth; requires school districts to adopt a performance pay schedule for all teachers and principals hired on or after July 1, 2014; and eliminates tenure for all new teachers hired on or after July 1, 2011. The proposed committee bill is scheduled to be heard in the K-20 Competitiveness Subcommittee on Wednesday, February 23, while S.B. 736 is scheduled to be heard the same day in the Florida Senate Committee on Budget.
