Honorable Kent Grusendorf, Chair, House Committee on Public Education
John S. O'Brien, Deputy Director, Legislative Budget Board
HB722 by Van Arsdale (Relating to contract requirements for contracts entered into between superintendents and independent school districts.), As Introduced
No fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
The bill would prohibit a superintendent's total annual compensation from exceeding an amount equal to six times the median annual teacher salary paid in the district and would prohibit a superintendent's contract from allowing accrued leave to be carried forward from one fiscal year to the next.
Local Government Impact
The bill would apply to contracts entered into after the bill's effective date of September 1, 2005. To the extent that school districts currently compensate superintendents at a rate greater than that prohibited by the provisions of the bill, there could be local savings when existing contracts expire and new contracts are entered into.
