SB900 would allow allow school boards to sell space on school buses and school property for advertising and, if a school board did so, would require school boards to use the proceeds for pay for pupil transportation and for maintenance and construction of school buildings, respectively. School boards already can, and do, sell advertising space on school property (e.g. on athletic fields) but, under the current law, school boards are not limited in how they can use the proceeds from such advertising. The bill was recommended to be passed by indefinitely by the Public Education subcommittee of the Senate Education and Health Committee today.
SB936 changes the date by which a school board must notify continuing contract principals, assistant principals, and supervisors of a reassignment to a classroom teaching position from April 15 to June 15. This bill is intended to parallel similar changes that were made last session to the Code sections relating to the nonrenewal of a teacher's contract. The bill was recommended for reporting today by the Public Education subcommittee of the Senate Education and Health Committee.
SB940 would require school boards to have an SRO in every elementary, middle, and high school. The bill also provides that the cost associated with the bill would be paid from the general appropriation act rather than by any locality or school board. The bill was recommended for referral to the Senate Finance Committee by the Public Education subcommittee of the Senate Education and Health Committee today.
