Pine Strawberry School District #12
Definition of Teacher Under ARS § 15­977 I01­014 (R01­020)

The Pine Strawberry School District #12 has officially approved the definition of "teacher" in response to meeting the Arizona State Legislature’s request.  On June 20, 2018 the Pine Strawberry Governing Board approved the definition of “teacher” using the Classroom Site Fund – A.G. Opinion I01-014.

Classroom Site Fund Definition A.G. Opinion I01-014 –concludes that the term “teacher” is not limited to traditional classroom teachers. “School districts and charter schools may use such funds for compensation increases for certified or certificated teachers and others employed to provide instruction to students related to the school's educational mission.” An employee who receives base compensation from Prop. 301 monies would also be eligible to receive a salary increase as a teacher. It should be noted, however, that subsequent court rulings and attorney general opinions have narrowed this definition to those possessing a teaching certificate and who spend at least 50% of their time devoted to instruction central to the school’s educational mission.
