Amend CSHB 2442 (senate committee printing) by adding the following appropriately numbered SECTIONS to the bill and renumbering subsequent SECTIONS of the bill accordingly:
SECTION ____.  Section 21.401, Education Code, is amended by amending Subsection (b) and adding Subsection (c-1) to read as follows:
(b)  Except as provided by Subsection (c-1), an [An] educator employed under a 10-month contract must provide a minimum of 187 days of service.
(c-1)  If a school district anticipates providing less than 180 days of instruction for students during a school year, as indicated by the district's academic calendar, the district may reduce the number of days of service required by this section proportionately. A reduction by the district does not reduce an educator's salary.
SECTION ____.  Section 21.401, Education Code, as amended by this Act, applies only to a contract executed on or after the effective date of this Act. A contract executed before the effective date of this Act is governed by the law in effect on the date the contract was executed, and the former law is continued in effect for that purpose.
