SECTION 341
Exemption from performance evaluation system and compensation and salary schedule requirements.
F.S. 1012.341
1012.341 Exemption from performance evaluation system and compensation and salary schedule requirements.
(1) Hillsborough County School District received an exemption under Florida’s Race to the Top Memorandum of Understanding for Phase 2, as provided in s. (D)(2)(ii) of the memorandum. Accordingly, notwithstanding any other provision of law, Hillsborough County School District is allowed to base 40 percent, instead of 50 percent, of instructional personnel and school administrator performance evaluations upon student performance under s. 1012.34. The school district is also exempt from the amendments to s. 1012.22(1)(c) made by chapter 2011-1, Laws of Florida. The exemptions described in this subsection are effective beginning with the 2011-2012 school year and until the expiration of this section.
(2) By October 1 annually, the superintendent of Hillsborough County School District shall attest, in writing, to the Commissioner of Education that:
(a) The instructional personnel and school administrator evaluation systems base at least 40 percent of an employee’s performance evaluation upon student performance and that student performance is the single greatest component of an employee’s evaluation.
(b) The instructional personnel and school administrator evaluation systems adopt the Commissioner of Education’s student learning growth formula for statewide assessments as provided under s. 1012.34(7).
(c) The school district’s instructional personnel and school administrator compensation system awards salary increases based upon sustained student performance.
(d) The school district’s contract system awards instructional personnel and school administrators based upon student performance and removes ineffective employees.
(3) Failure to comply with subsection (2) is grounds for the State Board of Education, at a public hearing, to revoke the exemption.

This section is repealed August 1, 2017, unless reviewed and reenacted by the Legislature.
