SENATE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION 58

(By Senator Rucker)

[Introduced April 1, 2021]

Requesting the Joint Committee on Government and Finance study the possible incentives and rewards to be given to county boards of education who show academic growth and success on a consistent basis.

Whereas, Success in academic performance across the state can be varied and inconsistent; and

Whereas, Flexibilities and incentives could incentivize county boards of education to perform at a higher and more consistent rate and give them a clear goal for improving their performance overall; and

Whereas, A study by the Michigan State University found that incentives are an effective means of improving student achievement, specifically those that are linked to student performances in the classroom; and

Whereas, A study from the University of Chicago found that non-financial rewards for student achievement were more effective in improving performance than financial rewards overall; and

Whereas, There are many ways to possibly incentivize a county board of education to improve performances beyond giving financial incentives, such as recognitions, rewards, or extended privileges; therefore, be it

Resolved by the Legislature of West Virginia:

Requesting the Joint Committee on Government and Finance study the possible incentives and rewards to be given to county boards of education who show academic growth and success on a consistent basis; and, be it

Further Resolved, That the study survey the county boards of education to gain an insight into what kinds of flexibilities, streamlining, or other means which may incentivize and reward positive academic outcomes; and, be it

Further Resolved, That the Joint Committee on Government and Finance consider all possible incentives for county boards of education beyond financial incentives, such as rewards, recognitions, or expanded privileges; and, be it

Further Resolved, That the Joint Committee on Government and Finance report to the regular session of the Legislature, 2022, on its findings, conclusions, and recommendations, together with drafts of any legislation necessary to effectuate its recommendations; and, be it

Further Resolved, That the expenses necessary to conduct this study, to prepare a report, and to draft necessary legislation be paid from the legislative appropriations to the Joint Committee on Government and Finance.
