Great news! There was only one bill affecting K-12 education heard today and it was ASBA’s HB 2500 (schools; teacher evaluations; dismissals), which passed Senate Third Read on reconsideration on a 19-11 vote. The bill now heads to the Governor’s desk for likely signature. This is the trailer bill to ensure proper implementation of last year’s HB2823 and furthers its intent. This is now a consensus bill (with AEA being neutral) and there will be no further changes. ASBA supports.
