RE: S.B. No. 2036
Honorable Robert Bunda
President of the Senate
Twenty-First State Legislature
Regular Session of 2002
State of Hawaii
Your Committees on Education and Ways and Means, to which was referred S.B. No. 2036 entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO EDUCATION,"
beg leave to report as follows:
The purposes of this measure are to:
(1) Require the Department of Education to provide an incentive bonus equal to 10% of any nonstate grant or subsidy that is awarded to a school or school teacher on a competitive basis, up to $25,000 per elementary, middle, or high school and $37,500 per multi-level school per fiscal year; and
(2) Appropriate $500,000 to the Department of Education.
Your Committees received testimony in support of the measure from the Department of Education.
Your Committees find that the incentive bonuses proposed by this measure would enhance the Department of Education's initiatives in improving teaching and learning in the elementary, middle, and high schools.
Your Committees have amended the measure by deleting the appropriation amounts and their corresponding percentages.
As affirmed by the records of votes of the members of your Committees on Education and Ways and Means that are attached to this report, your Committees are in accord with the intent and purpose of S.B. No. 2036, as amended herein, and recommends that it pass Second Reading in the form attached hereto as S.B. No. 2036, S.D. 1, and be placed on the calendar for Third Reading.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committees on Education and Ways and Means,
BRIAN T. TANIGUCHI, Chair
