Senate Roll Call 440 on
2011 House Bill 4626: Teacher tenure reform

Passed 25 to 13 in the Senate on June 30, 2011.
    See Who Voted "Yes" and Who Voted "No".
To revise a provision that prohibits firing or demoting a public school teacher except for "reasonable and just cause,” changing this to “for a reason that is not arbitrary and capricious.” Also, to only pay a suspended teacher for 60 days, unless the suspension is reversed in an appeal hearing. Finally, to revise the definition of a “demotion” of a teacher (which triggers a host of procedural mandates), from a loss of pay equal to three days of employment to a loss equal to 40 days over a year, or 20 consecutive days.
