House Ed is hearing the new RS on enrollment, cleaning up the kindergarten language. Watch it live. https://www.idahoptv.org/shows/idahoinsession/ew41/

Enrollment will be given a new RS with changes to the kindergarten language so that legislators don’t feel like it is giving full day kindergarten status. We believe it will get moved from RS status to a full bill and onto the full house, without another hearing in house ed. Will keep everyone posted.

The Change in Employee Compensation Committee, or CEC, has the duty of adopting salary increases for all state classified employees, which ultimately sets the base increase for classified employees in public schools. The CEC met last week to adopt their final recommendation on an increase and were unable to come to consensus. Please contact the CEC, as well as members of the Joint-Finance and Appropriations Committee, and provide them information on your local school district or charter’s ability to attract and retain classified employees.
