​2021 Legislature
Bill HB1297HB1298, and HB1299 all pass the House and Senate Floor Sessions.
  • HB1297 when first introduced in January addressed three items, (1) assessing fees to certain special fund accounts, (2) repealing certain special fund accounts and transferring balances to the general fund, and (3) making an appropriation to the department of health. The final version of this bill is totally different, it amends the Budget Bill HB200 by adding Collective Bargaining amounts.

  • HB1298 transfers special funds out of the Department of Education and adds a lot of reporting requirements for all remaining special funds. Does not provide additional resources tor these new reporting requirements.

  • HB1299 repeals two Department of Education special fund accounts and diverts balances to the general fund. Low impact to the department.​

​4/8/2021
​Department of Education
Update on Fiscal Biennium budget for 2021-23 (NOTE: This is a PRELIMINARY reaction to HB200 SD1.)

Five points:

  1. We appreciate the total level of general funds in the SD1, being relatively close to the Department's ask.  The Senate is approximately 2.1% ($38 million) below the Department's ask.
  2. We are still trying to understand the SD1, without the benefit of having access to the budget worksheets (line item details).  
  3. Based on what we can see from the Committee Report and funding total by EDN, OFS has concerns that it appears: a. the Senate was unable to fully restored the DEEP budget cuts contained in the Governor's original Request, and b. there are several new spending initiatives being proposed.  NOTE: you will recall that the $41 million of Program Review cuts were developed as options for consideration due to fiscal constraints, rather than preference.  In addition, there is also the $100.2 million of one-time FY21 cuts that were likely maintained in the SD1 at least in part for FY22 and FY23, for which we have consistently contended could not be implemented at the program level without significant disruption. 
  4. If the DEEP budget cuts are not addressed first, undertaking major new spending initiatives will be challenging to say the least.  
  5. So in short....we VERY much appreciate the Senate's efforts to ensure the level of state support meets the federally required MOE, but it appears that in some regards we may have serious concerns about the practicality and form of some of the funding "restoration." 
We are hoping there will be an opportunity for dialogue with FIN and WAM Chairs on the budget adjustments being considered in the days ahead, to ensure that to the extent possible whatever budget we end up with for FB 2021-23 can be implemented in a manner to best support student needs.

​Department of Education with Hawaii State Teachers Association

​The Hawaii State Teachers Association has reached an agreement with the Hawaii State Department of Education to push back the deadline for the first Teacher Assignment and Transfer Program (TATP) posting by one month. A delay in the TATP schedule and deadlines allows additional time for the department to consider restored budget reductions to the weighted student formula (WSF) and special education per-pupil allocation (SPPA), reducing the need for schools to cut teacher and other staff positions for the next school year.
