Vote Smart's Synopsis:

Vote to pass a bill that specifies procedures for the nonrenomination or nonreelection of teachers, effective July 1, 2011.

  • Increases the number of consecutive years of teaching required before a teacher may request a school board hearing regarding his or her dismissal from 3 years to 5 years, effective July 1, 2011 (Sec. 1).
  • Defines "Teacher" as any professional employee of any school district whose position requires certification as a professional engaged in teaching, including principals, assistant principals, librarians, and guidance counselors (Sec. 1).

  • Authorizes the school board to determine the grounds for nonrenomination and nonreelection at their discretion (Sec. 1).

  • Authorizes teachers to petition the state board of education if he or she is aggrieved by his or her dismissal, and specifies that this is the only remedy available to a teacher who has been dismissed (Sec. 2).
  • Prohibits grievances from being subject to binding arbitration or any other binding resolution (Sec. 3).
