MADILL, Okla. (KTEN) — The Oklahoma Legislature passed two bills which will impact education across the state when the school bell rings in the fall.

House Bill 3564 will incentivize college students who are studying education with between $1,000 and $2,500 if they agree to teach in public schools for at least five years.

House Bill 4388 will use funds that exceed $75 million from the Oklahoma Education Lottery Trust Fund and flip it into increased salaries for teachers with advanced, lead or master certificates.

"I'm for anything that'll encourage more people to go into education," said Madill Public Schools Superintendent Larry Case. "Of course, that's an incentive program that hopefully leads to more teacher employment."

In addition to the bills, there'll be a change in the funding formula which will only let district aid be determined by the upcoming or previous school year's student count. The previous formula let districts go as far back as three years to realize a higher student count.

"The three-year high that is going away will really effect smaller schools that would have that cushion, so it would be a one-year reaction where they'd have to let go of teachers or programs," Case explained.

It will take time for the new funding formula to have an impact on public school funding in Oklahoma, but the bills that address teacher salaries will have an immediate impact.
