Guidance Counselors and Excellent Teaching Program

Per Bob Serra, our CEES contact, HB 5005, which is the conforming bill to the education budget would insert the words “classroom teacher” into the section which limits who can get bonuses from the NBPTS certification.  Effectively, this would eliminate guidance counselors, library media specialists and reading coaches from receiving bonuses as part of the program.


If we want to undo this position, we should contact Rep. Flores, Rep. Stargel and Rep. Kair to make sure that each understands what is being proposed.  The Senate version of the conforming bill does not include this position at this time.”
