Regular Session of 2002

State of Hawaii


Your Committee on Education, to which was referred S.B. No. 2926, S.D. 1, entitled:


begs leave to report as follows:

The purpose of this bill, as received by your Committee, is to:

(1) Compensate high school assistant athletic directors in the same manner as coaches; and

(2) Allow coaches and high school assistant athletic directors to waive their stipends so that the funds may be allocated to the school to be used for the benefit of their respective sports team.

For purposes of receiving public testimony, your Committee circulated a proposed H.D. 1 version of this bill which deletes the bill's contents and inserts language that requires the Department of Education (DOE) to conduct a comprehensive occupational validation study of its educational officers.

The Hawaii Government Employees Association submitted testimony in opposition to the proposed draft. DOE submitted comments on the proposed draft.

Upon further consideration, your Committee has amended this bill by incorporating the provisions of the proposed H.D. 1.

As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Education that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of S.B. No. 2926, S.D. 1, as amended herein, and recommends that it pass Second Reading in the form attached hereto as S.B. No. 2926,

S.D. 1, H.D. 1, and be referred to the Committee on Finance.

Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Education,



KEN ITO, Chair
