HB 236 Teacher Emeritus Fund and Program; established.

SUMMARY AS INTRODUCED:

Teacher Emeritus Fund and Program established. Establishes the Teacher Emeritus Fund and Program as a competitive grant program administered by the Department of Education for the purpose of awarding grants to local school divisions to hire teachers emeriti who have completed at least 20 years of service as teachers in the public elementary and secondary schools of the Commonwealth to mentor public elementary and secondary school teachers with less than two years of classroom experience on the day-to-day challenges of classroom instruction. Such grants would cover one-quarter of the salary of a teacher emeritus for up to four years, provided that the school division hires no more than one teacher emeritus per 100 full-time equivalent teaching positions. The bill permits any teacher emeritus receiving a service retirement allowance under the Virginia Retirement System to elect to continue to receive the retirement allowance during such employment if he has been receiving such retirement allowance for a certain period of time preceding his employment as provided by law and he is not receiving a retirement benefit pursuant to an early retirement incentive program from any local school division within the Commonwealth.
