HB1276 by Rosenthal ( relating to the assignment of a public school student to an uncertified teacher.), Committee Report 1st House, Substituted
No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
It is assumed that the provisions of the bill relating to the assignment of a first through sixth grade student to a teacher without an appropriate certificate and less than one year of experience could be absorbed using existing resources.
Local Government Impact
During the 2017-18 school year, 196 school districts had an enrollment of 5,000 or more students and would have been subject to the bill's assignment provisions. Administrative costs to implement the assignment provisions would vary from district to district and would depend on how many teachers in the district had less than one year of experience and did not hold appropriate certification that were teaching the foundation curriculum in grades one through six.
