Senate Bill 184 Passes Senate
ATLANTA (Monday 9, 2012) – Eager to get down to business, the senate adjourned today passing the first piece of education reform of the 2012 legislative session. Senate Bill 184 authored by President Pro Tempore Tommie Williams (R-Lyons) passed 38 to 15. SB 184 amends the current law to require a local school board to primarily consider a teacher’s effectiveness in advancing student achievements when considering whom to lay off in a reduction of force implementation. The amount of time a teacher has been employed cannot be the primary or determining factor. The bill also establishes the Professional Learning Rules Task Force who will review the current professional learning rules for educators and provide suggestions for revision of the rules. Sponsors of the bill include Majority Leader Chip Rogers and Sen. John Albers.
