Current Bill Summary

SCS/SB 503 - This act would require the state board of education to adopt rules to facilitate job-sharing by teachers. Job-sharing is defined as a certificated employee who is sharing a position with one other employee, is employed by the district for at least 50% of the workweek, and is spending at least 70% of his or her time in classroom instruction. Teachers in job- sharing positions will receive holidays and leave on a pro rata basis. Certain positions are excluded from job-sharing positions.

Teachers in eligible job-sharing positions will accrue membership service for retirement at the rate of year for each regular district year of employment. The contribution rate for job-sharing positions for retirement purposes is one-half the rate for a full-time teacher.
