HB55 Guidelines

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.
