STAND. COM. REP. NO.2931
RE: H.B. No. 2851
Honorable Robert Bunda
President of the Senate
Twenty-First State Legislature
Regular Session of 2002
State of Hawaii
Your Committees on Education and Labor, to which was referred H.B. No. 2851, H.D. 2, entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO THE HAWAII TEACHER STANDARDS BOARD,"
beg leave to report as follows:
The purposes of this measure are to establish the Hawaii Administrator Standards Board to adopt school administrator certification standards, and to establish the Hawaii School Administrator Standards Board Revolving Fund.
Testimony in support of the intent of this measure was received from the Department of Education, Hawaii Teacher Standards Board, and Hawaii Government Employees Association.
Your Committees find that leadership is a key factor in the achievement of expectations for the public school system, and that the Department's school administrator training program contributes to this effort.
Your Committees have heard a number of concerns and comments regarding this measure and believe it warrants further discussion by the parties involved. Your Committees have amended this measure to delay the effective date and to make technical, nonsubstantive amendments to reflect the preferred drafting style.
As affirmed by the records of votes of the members of your Committees on Education and Labor that are attached to this report, your Committees are in accord with the intent and purpose of H.B. No. 2851, H.D. 2, as amended herein, and recommend that it pass Second Reading in the form attached hereto as H.B. No. 2851, H.D. 2, S.D. 1, and be referred to the Committee on Ways and Means.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committees on Education and Labor,
BOB NAKATA, Chair
NORMAN SAKAMOTO, Chair
