STAND. COM. REP. NO. 1981
RE: H.B. No. 407
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. 407, 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 regulate the termination procedure for a complex area superintendent in the State.
Specifically, this measure requires that:
(1) The Board of Education issue an approval prior to the termination of a complex area superintendent in the State; and
(2) A complex area superintendent have adequate opportunity to present the complex area superintendent's case to the Board of Education prior to the Board's termination decision.
Your Committee received written comments in opposition to this measure from the Board of Education.
Your Committee finds that this measure grants the Board of Education the flexibility to terminate a complex area superintendent, while also preserving the right of a complex area superintendent to present a case against termination prior to the Board's decision.
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. 407, H.D. 1, S.D. 1, and recommends that it pass Third Reading.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Ways and Means,
DONOVAN M. DELA CRUZ, Chair
