SB 795 (3R) - Excellent Public Schools Act

This bill is largely included in this year’s budget bill. However, the most controversial provision of the legislation, the abolishment of career status (i.e. tenure) for teachers and allowing local school boards the option of providing multi-year contracts for teachers, is not included in the final budget bill. Civitas believes the conservative position is to provide a sound education to students that includes choice in schools and also reward effective teachers and root out those that are ineffective.
