    I move that Engrossed Senate Bill 292 be amended to read as follows:

SOURCE: Page 2, line 2; (02)MO029202.2. -->     Page 2, between lines 2 and 3, begin a new paragraph and insert:
SOURCE: IC 20-6.1-5-2.5; (02)MO029202.2. -->     "SECTION 2. IC 20-6.1-5-2.5 IS ADDED TO THE INDIANA CODE AS A NEW SECTION TO READ AS FOLLOWS [EFFECTIVE JULY 1, 2002]: Sec. 2.5. (a) For school corporations where teachers' salaries, compensation, and other benefits are determined under a contract reached through collective bargaining under IC 20-7.5, this section applies to teachers' salaries, compensation, and other benefits under collective bargaining contracts that are executed and take effect after June 30, 2002.
    (b) As used in this section, "approved academic credit" refers to academic credit in courses approved by the board.
    (c) For purposes of determining teachers' salaries, compensation, and other benefits, the following apply:
        (1) A school corporation shall count in the number of credit hours attributable to an individual teacher all hours of approved academic credit that the teacher earns beyond an undergraduate degree.
        (2) A school corporation may elect to count in the number of credit hours attributable to an individual teacher any credit hours that the teacher earns beyond an undergraduate degree that are not approved academic credit.
        (3) A school corporation shall recognize as equivalent:
            (A) a teacher who earns a master's degree; and

                (i) is determined through collective bargaining under IC 20-7.5; and
                (ii) does not exceed thirty-six (36) hours.
    (d) Compensation for continuing education or professional development activities that are required in order to obtain or retain a teaching license shall be determined in accordance with IC 20-7.5.
