3. Explanation of above estimates (including long-range effect):
    The purpose of this bill is to require a $2,000 salary supplement be paid to teachers, principals and assistant principals that are assigned to schools with a student population that is considered to be high poverty or high minority and a $5,000 supplement to teachers teaching in a documented area of shortage in math and science in those schools, but these teachers are not to receive both supplements. The bill also provides for monetary incentives for teachers, principals and assistant principals whose students meet goals for student growth during the preceding year. The bill also authorized county board to provide county supplements for the same purposes.
    
    The cost estimates were based on the following facts and assumptions:
    Schools identified as being high poverty 177
    Schools identified as being high minority 64
    No of classroom teachers eligible for the high poverty or high minority supplement 4,466
    No. of principals and ass’t principals in high poverty or high minority schools 274
    No. of math and science teachers in high poverty or high minority schools 765
    No. of classroom teachers and other instructional personnel employed 22,066
    
    Since the multiple student growth goals have not been developed as of yet, the number of teachers whose students will meet those goals cannot be determined, however, a low and high estimate is provided, with the low estimate being based on the assumption that half of the classroom teachers employed (50%) will be eligible for the growth supplement and the high estimate based on the assumption that all classroom teachers (100%) will be eligible for the growth supplement.
    
    • Low Estimated Cost:
    High poverty and high minority supplement - $16,044,615
    50% of teachers eligible for growth supplement - 11,999,491
    • Total low estimated cost $28,044,106
    
    • High Estimated Cost:
    • High poverty and high minority supplement - $16,044,615
    100% of teachers eligible for growth supplement - 23,998,982
     Total high estimated cost $40,043,597
