STAND. COM. REP. NO. 2030
RE: H.B. No. 1530
Honorable Ronald D. Kouchi
President of the Senate
Thirtieth State Legislature
Regular Session of 2019
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Ways and Means, to which was referred H.B. No. 1530, H.D. 1, S.D. 1, entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO EDUCATION,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose and intent of this measure is to establish the teacher mentor incentive program.
More specifically, this measure:
(1) Establishes the teacher mentor incentive program within the Department of Education; and
(2) Appropriates moneys to the Department of Education for the teacher mentor incentive program.
Your Committee received written comments in support of this measure from the Department of Education, University of Hawaii, James Campbell High School, Hawaii State Teachers Association, HawaiiKidsCAN, and numerous individuals.
Your Committee finds that establishing a teacher mentor incentive program will encourage experienced teachers to devote time to mentor and aid in the development of less-experienced teachers.
Your Committee has amended this measure by making technical nonsubstantive changes for purposes of clarity, consistency, and style.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Ways and Means that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of H.B. No. 1530, H.D. 1, S.D. 1, as amended herein, and recommends that it pass Third Reading in the form attached hereto as H.B. No. 1530, H.D. 1, S.D. 2.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Ways and Means,
DONOVAN M. DELA CRUZ, Chair
