HB 455, signed into law by the Governor, addresses the state salary increases paid
on advanced degrees in leadership for individuals not assigned to leadership positions.
July 1, 2010 is the cut-off date for “grandfathering” as established by the law.
To facilitate implementation of the new law, attached are the HB 455 GUIDELINES,
jointly prepared by GaPSC and GaDOE. These guidelines were prepared in consultation
with a group of superintendents, HR directors, higher education representatives
and other state-level educational leaders.
Both GaPSC and GaDOE will be implementing a number of changes to appropriate Rules
over the next few months.
Also attached for additional information, is a link to an update article on HB 455
and HB 280 found in the most recent issue of The PSC Pulse.
