Ed Emery bill eliminates tenure for all teachers hired after August 2013
SB 408 says that no teacher hired after Aug. 28, 2013, (the day the bill would go into effect) would be eligible for tenure.
Emery's omnibus bill also includes the following;
-Giving all school districts grade cards, rating them A, B, C, D, or F
-A grading system must be put in place for teachers, with most of their grade determined by student test scores
-Districts must adopt pay schedules that do not use advanced degrees or experience as factors
-Districts can pay more to those who teach math, science or special education
-When schools have to eliminate faculty due to budget problems, number of years served in the school district cannot be used as a factor.
