Staff Analysis of the Legislation

HB2033- schools; failing; underperforming; turnaround specialists (Fillmore)

Current law states that if a school district has six or more schools where at least half of the schools are assigned a letter grade of D or F, the Arizona Department of Education may submit recommendation for a public hearing with the State Board of Education to determine if the school district should be subject to an alternative operation plan.

This bill now requires only one school be assigned a D or F before recommendation for a public hearing is required, and the Board is required to develop and implement an alternative operation plan, instead of being permitted to do so by a majority vote.

Alternative operation plans must include the appointment of a “turnaround specialist” who assumes largely the same responsibilities as is currently required, except that turnaround specialists are able to release probationary teachers without undergoing the statutory process previously required.
