105 ILCS 5/2-3.131 new
Amends the School Code. Requires the State Board of Education to
establish and administer a 10-year pilot program known as the Keeping
the Best on Board Program. Under the program, a school district may
apply each year to the State Board for funds to award bonuses to
certified teachers who have completed one year of continuous service
as a teacher with the district, with the teacher being eligible for an
additional bonus for each additional year of continuous service.
Provides that the district shall set aside the funds received each
year for bonuses instead of distributing the bonuses to the teachers.
Provides that each year after 5 years of continuous service, the
district shall distribute to the teacher the bonus that was set aside
4 years earlier, with the teacher forfeiting the bonuses that were set
aside if the teacher does not complete 5 years of continuous service.
Effective June 30, 2002.
