PETER  HOEPFNER,  Cordova  School Board,  testified  that  schools                                                              
throughout  Alaska have positions  that they  are unable  to fill,                                                              
particularly  the  hard-to-fill   teaching  positions  in  special                                                              
education and high  school mathematics and science.   He said that                                                              
this is true both  in urban and rural Alaska.   He stated that the

Job  Fair has  dropped  dramatically.   In  2014,  there were  250                                                              
candidates; in 2017,  there were only 211 candidates  with 850-900                                                              
open positions, including janitors and nurses.                                                                                  
                                                                                                                                
MR.  HOEPFNER  relayed  that  the main  reason  teachers  come  to                                                              
Alaska is  for an "Alaskan  experience."   Salaries are  not high;                                                              
there  are  no retirement  benefits;  and  there is  a  nationwide                                                              
shortage of teachers.   He reported that the  Texas teacher salary                                                              
starts  at $56,000  for someone  with a bachelor's  degree  and no

pay.                                                                                                                            
                                                                                                                                
MR.  HOEPFNER  offered that  the  proposed  legislation  is not  a                                                              
"silver bullet"  to filling  teacher positions  but one  more tool                                                              
in the  toolbox to  put a teacher  in front  of students  in every

requiring  districts to  try to  fill  positions with  [permanent]

amenable to school  districts.  Teachers are  contracted currently                                                              
for only one year.                                                                                                              
                                                                                                                                
MR. HOEPFNER relayed  that HB 224 is supported  by the Association

adopted in  1999 and resolution  4.10, entitled "Urging  the State

MR. HOEPFNER added  that the revised fiscal note for  HB 224 shows

REPRESENTATIVE  TUCK asked  whether  there is  a possibility  that                                                              
more teachers  would  choose to  come to Alaska,  if salaries  and                                                              
retirement benefits improved.                                                                                                   
                                                                                                                                
MR.  HOEPFNER  responded  that   the  changes  in  the  retirement

REPRESENTATIVE TUCK  asked about  the practice of  "pink slipping"

passed until  June 22.   He  asked how  that affected the  Cordova                                                              
School District (CSD).                                                                                                          
                                                                                                                                
MR. HOEPFNER  answered that the  district hires teachers  and pays

puts the  teacher in  a terrible  position; and  when the  teacher

he  appreciates both  SB  131 and  HB 287  to  ensure funding  for

REPRESENTATIVE TUCK  asked Mr. Hoepfner whether his  district lost

MR. HOEPFNER  replied that CSD has  not.  He said that  82 percent

a large  turnover of  younger teachers.   He  maintained that  the

SHAWN   ARNOLD,  Superintendent,   Nome   Public  Schools   (NPS),                                                              
testified that  he is in  strong support of  HB 224; it is  a tool                                                              
that will help school  districts at a time when they  need help in                                                              
attracting  effective educators.    He offered  what  he called  a                                                              
"boots on the  ground" perspective:  The rural  districts struggle                                                              
more and  more with the fewer  applicants for teaching  positions;                                                              
the  proposed  legislation  would  help  particularly  in  filling                                                              
specialist   positions   -   special    education   teachers   and                                                              
counselors.   As  an  example, NPS  had  three  positions with  no                                                              
applicants prior to  the school year; for a district  with only 54                                                              
teachers,  that had an  enormous impact.   He  stated that  two of                                                              
the positions -  special education teacher and  junior high school                                                              
counselor - remained unfilled throughout the year.                                                                              
                                                                                                                                
MR.  ARNOLD  relayed   that  Nome  is  a  great   community;  many                                                              
educators stay there  after retiring; however, they  are unwilling                                                              
to  return to  the school  district to  provide services,  because                                                              
doing  so  might   compromise  their  retirement   benefits.    He                                                              
mentioned that  even having  them come back  part time  would help                                                              
the district.                                                                                                                   
                                                                                                                                
MR.  ARNOLD  asserted  that the  proposed  legislation  would  not                                                              
solve  all  the problems  with  the  teacher shortage  crisis  but                                                              
would help in the rural areas.

REPRESENTATIVE TUCK  asked for the average age of  the NPS teacher

MR. ARNOLD replied  that the average age about four  years ago was                                                              
about 50; the average  tenure of teachers was about  13 years.  He                                                              
said that  there has  been a  trend towards  lower ages  and lower

Tier  2 of  the  Teachers'  Retirement  System (TRS);  without  an                                                              
incentive to  stay 20 or 25  years, there is an  increasing number                                                              
of  teachers who  stay for  a while  to get  experience then  take                                                              
their experience  to a Lower 48  teaching position.  He  said that                                                              
within a few short  years, the average age has  decreased to about

REPRESENTATIVE  TUCK  asked  what  the reduction  in  the  average

MR. ARNOLD  responded that the average  tenure in his  district is                                                              
now about  10 years.   He said that NPS  used to have  60 teachers                                                              
and now  has 54  teachers.  He  added that  teachers used  to stay

PATRICK   MAYER,   Superintendent,    Wrangell   Public   Schools,                                                              
testified   that    he   is   president-elect   of    the   Alaska

strong  support of  HB  224; it  is a  mechanism  that would  help                                                              
school  districts at  a  time when  they  need  immediate help  to

proposed  legislation would  not solve all  the challenges  facing                                                              
school districts,  but it can provide  some relief.  He  said that                                                              
HB 224  would allow for the  reemployment of retired  educators to

MR.  MAYER  relayed  that  the   proposed  legislation  is  vital,                                                              
because Alaska has  a critical shortage of  educators, principals,

considering a retired teacher.                                                                                                  
                                                                                                                                
MS. REXFORD  stated that  the second change  was the  insertion of

and pointed  out that the  proposed legislation stipulates  that a

assumption  is that  the district  would have  advertised for  the

one  is for  the rehire  of  retired teachers;  the  other is  for

REPRESENTATIVE  TUCK   offered  that  on  page  2,   lines  13-14,                                                              
subsection (f) has  been added to clarify that issue.   He relayed

REPRESENTATIVE TUCK  removed his objection to the  motion to adopt

REPRESENTATIVE  TUCK  stated  that  the  proposed  legislation  is                                                              
needed to  ensure Alaska has  qualified teachers in  rural Alaska.                                                              
He  added that  it  is unfortunate  that  the  legislature is  not                                                              
accomplishing  this  through  methods  known to  work,  that  have

that's how you keep  them there; that's how they  are able to have

worries that  Alaska's teacher  personnel will become  "top-heavy"                                                              
again, due  to hiring back retirees  and not taking the  effort to

possibly  necessary because  of the state's  fiscal situation  and                                                              
lack of retirement benefits.                                                                                                    
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE  TUCK relayed  that the state  relies on  teachers'                                                              
passion to teach  more than on offering greater  compensation.  He                                                              
expressed that  it is alarming  that in  Texas, one can  start out

conditions in  rural Alaska.   Alaska is  not getting a  return on

there  are  no defined  retirement  benefits  or  social  security

REPRESENTATIVE  KNOPP  said  that he  agrees;  it  is a  band  aid

He  stated that  the proposed  legislation is  a "good  fix."   He                                                              
offered that there  are numerous reasons why teachers  don't stay;                                                              
benefit packet and  pay may be part of the retention  problem.  He                                                              
said  that of  the salary  studies  that he  has reviewed,  Alaska

substantially  different  [than in  the Lower  48].   He  recalled                                                              
that  there  used  to  be  a  loan  forgiveness  program,  and  he

REPRESENTATIVE  WOOL  said  that   he  agrees  that  the  proposed                                                              
legislation  offers a temporary  fix.   He added that  fortunately                                                              
we have many good  teachers who are retiring that  Alaska may want
