SENATE BILL 1205
RS30730 / S1205
This is the FY 2024 original appropriation bill for the Public Schools Educational Support Program's Division of Teachers.
This division provides state and federal funding support for grades K-12 for instructional and pupil service staff salaries and benefits, and other programs specific to certificated instructors in Idaho's school districts and public charter schools.
This bill provides statutory-based funding adjustments for the Career Ladder, Master Educator Premiums, and math and science requirements. This bill also includes funding for professional development services including for dyslexia. Finally, this bill provides the funding and authority to allocate and distribute an additional $6,359 for each allocated teacher and pupil service staff. The intent of these funds is for ongoing compensation and not for onetime bonuses. However, each school district and charter school is responsible for setting their own salary schedules; Idaho Code only provides for minimum compensation amounts.
