Oklahoma House Committee Trying to Restore Teacher Stipend
03/26/2012
 

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - An Oklahoma House committee plans to take
up legislation that would restore a $5,000 stipend to Oklahoma
teachers who complete the National Board Certification process.
     The House Appropriations Subcommittee on Education will take up
the Senate-passed measure on Monday.
     Certification is a rigorous program that takes teachers up to
three years to complete. State law allows educators who complete
the process to receive an annual $5,000 stipend for 10 years, if
funding is available.
     But the State Board of Education voted last year to withhold
funding the bonuses after lawmakers cut the public education
budget. The board also eliminated funding for a scholarship program
to help defray costs to teachers seeking National Board
certification.
     The measure would require the Legislature to appropriate $15
million a year for the program.
