Florida Legislators To Consider Plan To Eliminate Salaries For County School Board Members
TALLAHASSEE (CBSMiami/NSF) - State lawmakers Thursday will consider a proposal that could eliminate salaries for county school board members.
The House Education & Employment Committee will take up a bill (HB 1467), filed by Rep. Sam Garrison, R-Fleming Island, that would repeal parts of state law that include school-board salaries.
Salaries are based on a formula that includes county populations.
They range this year from $26,965 in Liberty County to $47,189 in Broward, Hillsborough, Miami-Dade, Orange, and Palm Beach counties, according to a House staff analysis.
Garrison's bill also would make a series of changes related to instructional materials and library books in public schools.
