PROFESSNL TCHR STANDARDS BOARD                                             

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends  the  School  Code.  Creates  the   Professional   Teacher      
   Standards  Board  consisting  of 19 members appointed by the Governor,      
   with the advice and consent of the Senate, to administer  the  Article      
   of  the  School Code governing the certification of teachers and other      
   certificated  school  personnel  and  the  approval  of  teacher   and      
   administrator  preparation  programs.   Gives the Professional Teacher      
   Standards Board all powers and duties currently exercised by the State      
   Board of Education and the  State  Teacher  Certification  Board  with      
   respect  to  administration  of the certification and program approval      
   process,  and  abolishes  the  State  Teacher   Certification   Board.      
   Authorizes  the  Professional  Teacher  Standards  Board  to employ an      
   Executive Director and such other staff members as  are  necessary  to      
   exercise its powers and duties and carry out its functions.  Effective      
   January 1, 1998.                                                            
          FISCAL NOTE (State Bd. of Ed.)                                       
          The cost would likely be several million dollars. SBE costs do       
          not serve as a good estimate since many expenses are shared          
          among a variety of agency programs.                                  
          STATE MANDATES FISCAL NOTE (SBE)                                     
          No change from SBE fiscal note.                                      
        HOUSE AMENDMENT NO. 1.                                                 
        Provides that State Board  of  Education  staff  who  lose  their      
   employment  with  that  Board  as  a  result  of  the  creation of the      
   Professional Teacher Standards Board shall be afforded  the  right  to      
   transfer their employment, without interruption and with the retention      
   of  their  current  seniority  and  salary status, to the Professional      
   Teacher Standards Board.                                                    
          FISCAL NOTE, H-AM 1 (State Bd. of Ed.)                               
          No change from previous fiscal note.                                 
          STATE MANDATES FISCAL NOTE, H-AM 1 (SBE)                             
          No change from previous SBE mandates note.                           
          STATE DEBT IMPACT NOTE, H-AM 1                                       
          HB819, with H-am 1, would not impact the level of State debt.
