House of Representatives
Session of 2017 - 2018 Regular Session


Posted: March 20, 2017 01:57 PM
From: Representative Thomas R. Caltagirone
To: All House members
Subject: Savings For School Districts (DOE Employer for all Teachers)
I plan to introduce a bill that calls upon the Pennsylvania Department of Education to transition to become the public employer of all school personnel for purposes of collective bargaining as present contracts expire, rather than the 500 individual school districts. In addition, the Department is tasked with preparing a plan for the administrative consolidation of school districts, with an eye toward maximizing utilization of present facilities and cost containment. Under my bill, the administrative authority for hiring, firing, promotion, demotion and discipline of school district personnel would remain at the school district level, in whichever form they exist either before or after any future consolidations.

Please join me and cosponsor this bill.

Introduced as HB1172
