2011 House Bill 4627: Ban laying off more effective but less senior teachers first (“LIFO”) (Senate Roll Call 442)

Passed 20 to 17 in the Senate on June 30, 2011, to prohibit public schools from using seniority as the primary or determining factor when making layoff or recall decisions (“last in first out,” or LIFO), and prohibit giving preference to a teacher rated "ineffective" over ones rated "minimally effective" or above, according to a detailed and complex rating system. Unlike the House version, principals could not refuse to accept an "ineffective" teacher assigned to the school.
