Create a new section of KRS Chapter 157 to provide an annual salary supplement for speech-language pathologists and audiologists holding a certificate of clinical competence from the American Speech-Language Hearing Association; require, as a condition of receiving the supplement, that a speech-language pathologist or audiologist be employed by a local board of education to provide or coordinate speech-language pathology or audiology for students and holds a valid credential from the Educational Professional Standards Board or a license issued by the Kentucky Board of Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology; require, as a condition of allocation, that the supplement only be paid if funds are appropriated for that purpose; require that the salary supplement be equivalent to the stipend paid to teachers who have attained National Board of Professional Teaching Standards certification; require that the salary supplement be considered in the calculation for contribution to the Kentucky Teachers' Retirement System; require that the supplement cease if the speech-language pathologist or audiologist is employed in another capacity in which the provision of speech-language pathology or audiology is secondary to that person's other teaching or administrative duties; direct the local board of education to request reimbursement from the fund to support educational excellence.
