Union, Lawmakers Agree on Teacher Layoffs

(BOISE, ID)  —  In a rare moment of bipartisan agreement on education, state lawmakers and the Idaho Education Association are moving forward with a bill that would expand the criteria districts use when determining teacher layoffs. Current laws only allow districts to consider seniority as a factor for budgetary layoffs, but new legislation would add factors like teacher performance evaluations. The bill comes with a one-year sunset clause that will allow the state to weigh the merits of the plan for future policy changes.
