The House has given final approval to a bill offering higher pay for some math and science teachers.
H.B. 280 offers a step up on the state’s pay scale for teachers who are or who become certified as math or science educators.
Education Committee Chairman Brooks Coleman (R-Duluth) asked the House to agree to a Senate amendment that simply made it clear the higher pay is only available if the Legislature decides to pay for it in any given year.
The bill now goes to Gov. Sonny Perdue.
