Explanation

The amendment strikes the underlying bill and its associated fiscal impact.

The amendment makes a procedural change to teach evaluations by allowing the use of mastery exam data. Additionally, the amendment makes the responsibilities of the Performance Evaluation Advisory Council permissive. If the State Department of Education (SDE) opts not to complete the PEAC responsibilities, the department could incur a savings. The amount of the savings would be dependent upon the shift in responsibilities.
