Eye On Boise

iSTARS is off the agenda

State Superintendent of Schools Tom Luna’s “iSTARS” teacher pay plan was supposed to come up for a vote tomorrow in the Senate Education Committee, but now it’s off the agenda. “We’re just taking a cautious approach, making sure we have everyone’s questions answered before we have the vote on that,” said Senate President Pro-tem Bob Geddes, a co-sponsor of the bill. Asked if the bill is changing, Geddes said, “Possibly.”

“There are some people that have some heartburn over certain aspects of it,” Geddes said. “We’ll see if we need to make some adjustments before we move forward.”
