Wrangell, Alaska - Governor Palin today signed a bill into law that will suspend the experience cap for teachers.
House Bill 215, sponsored by Representative Peggy Wilson, repeals salary scale limitations for hiring new out-of-state teachers. The bill allows districts to better compete for those teachers coming into the state who bring with them years of experience. Current law limits experience-based salary adjustments to eight years of non-Alaska service. HB 215 suspends the experience cap for a two-year period. For many years, this law was irrelevant because salaries in Alaska were generally much higher than elsewhere in the country. As Alaska’s teaching salaries have become less competitive, school districts have a need for incentives to attract experienced and qualified personnel for hard-to-fill positions.
“HB 215 provides Alaska’s school districts with the ability to offer competitive salaries to attract the best, most qualified teachers,” Governor Palin told Mr. Engell’s American Government class. “This, in turn, provides Alaska’s students with the best, highest-quality education.”
The Governor signed HB 215 at Petersburg High School.
