 22        SECTION  3.  There  is  hereby  appropriated  to  the  Educational Support

 30        SECTION  4.  It is legislative intent that public school employee benefits
 31    paid by the state, pursuant to Section 33-1004F, Idaho Code, be paid  for  all
 32    eligible  employees  that  a school district or public charter school actually
 33    employs with its salary-based apportionment allotment, regardless  of  whether
 34    such  employees are categorized as administrative, instructional or classified
 35    staff.

 36        SECTION 5.  That Section 33-1004E, Idaho Code, be, and the same is  hereby
 37    amended to read as follows:

 38        33-1004E.  DISTRICT'S  SALARY-BASED  APPORTIONMENT. Each district shall be
 39    entitled to a salary-based apportionment calculated as provided in  this  sec-

                                       2

  1    tion.
  2        1.  To  determine  the apportionment for instructional staff, first deter-
  3    mine the district average experience and education index by placing all eligi-
  4    ble district certificated instructional employees on the statewide index  pro-
  5    vided  in  section 33-1004A, Idaho Code. The resulting average is the district
  6    index. Districts with an index above the state  average  index  shall  receive
  7    their  actual  index  but  not  more  than  the state average plus .03 for the
  8    1994-95 school year, and shall receive their actual index but  not  more  than
  9    the  state  average plus .06 for the 1995-96 school year, and thereafter shall
 10    receive their actual district index. The district  instructional  staff  index
 11    shall be multiplied by the instructional base salary of $24,623. The amount so
 12    determined  shall  be  multiplied by the district staff allowance for instruc-
 13    tional staff determined as provided in section  33-1004(2),  Idaho  Code.  The
 14    instructional salary allocation shall be increased by the amount necessary for
 15    each  full-time equivalent instructional staff member placed on the experience
 16    and education index to be allocated at least the minimum  salary  mandated  by
 17    this  section. Full-time instructional staff salaries shall be determined from
 18    a salary schedule developed by  each  district  and  submitted  to  the  state
 19    department of education. No full-time instructional staff member shall be paid
 20    less  than $31,000. If an instructional staff member has been certified by the
 21    national board for professional teaching standards, the staff member shall  be
 22    designated as a master teacher and receive $2,000 per year for five (5) years.
 23    The instructional salary shall be increased by $2,000 for each master teacher.
 24    The resulting amount is the district's salary-based apportionment for instruc-
 25    tional staff. For purposes of this section, teachers qualifying for the salary
 26    increase as master teacher shall be those who have been recognized as national
 27    board certified teachers as of July 1 of each year.
 28        2.  To  determine  the  apportionment  for  district administrative staff,
 29    first determine the district average experience and education index by placing
 30    all eligible certificated administrative employees on the statewide index pro-
 31    vided in section 33-1004A, Idaho Code. The resulting average is  the  district
 32    index.  Districts  with  an  index above the state average index shall receive
 33    their actual index but not more than the state average plus .03 for the school
 34    year 1994-95, and shall receive their actual index but not more than the state
 35    average index plus .06 for the  1995-96  school  year,  and  thereafter  shall
 36    receive  their  actual district index. The district administrative staff index
 37    shall be multiplied by the base salary of $35,81636,532. The amount so  deter-
 38    mined  shall  be multiplied by the district staff allowance for administrative
 39    staff determined as provided in section 33-1004(3), Idaho Code. The  resulting
 40    amount is the district's salary-based apportionment for administrative staff.
 41        3.  To  determine the apportionment for classified staff, multiply $19,783
 42    by the district classified staff allowance determined as provided  in  section
 43    33-1004(4),  Idaho Code. The amount so determined is the district's apportion-
 44    ment for classified staff.
 45        4.  The district's salary-based apportionment shall  be  the  sum  of  the
 46    apportionments  calculated in subsections 1., 2. and 3., of this section, plus
 47    the benefit apportionment as provided in section 33-1004F, Idaho Code.

Statement of Purpose / Fiscal Impact


STATEMENT OF PURPOSE

RS17274

This is the Fiscal Year 2009 appropriation for the Division of Administrators portion of the Public Schools budget. The pieces of the Public Schools budget that are part of this division's appropriation include: 1) The administrators' portion of the salary-based apportionment formula; 2) State paid employee benefits for administrators, which include PERSI and FICA; and 3) The administrators' portion of federal pass-through funding to local school districts.

 

This budget adds General Funds for an estimated increase of 170 new full-term support units. The federal pass-through funds remain the same as in last year's budget. This bill also includes standard intent language in Section 4, which provides guidance to the state Department of Education that state-paid benefits should be paid for the full salary-based apportionment allotment of school districts. This prevents a use it or lose it situation regarding those funds. This bill also increases the base salary of Administrators from $35,816 to $36,532, which is a 2% increase.
