    Bill Summary

    ON APRIL 18, 2012, THE SENATE ADOPTED AMENDMENT #1 AND PASSED SENATE BILL 1180, AS AMENDED.

    AMENDMENT #1 rewrites this bill. Present law requires the commissioner of education to develop long-term, quantifiable goals for K-12 education, to be known as "TENNESSEE CHALLENGE 2000." Also, present law requires THEC to submit a biennial report to the governor and the general assembly, commenting upon major developments, trends, new policies, budgets and financial considerations that, in the judgment of the commission, will be useful to the governor and to the general assembly in planning for the sound and adequate development of the state's program of public higher education. Under present law, as part of THEC's master planning and funding formulae responsibilities, THEC must establish a review committee to aid in development or revision of the higher education master plan and funding formulae.

    This amendment deletes the above-described present law provisions and instead requires THEC to submit an annual report on the condition of higher education to the governor and the general assembly. This report, which will be known as the Tennessee postsecondary education fact book, will use data from the board of regents system, the University of Tennessee system and their governing bodies and, to the extent possible, from the Tennessee Independent Colleges and Universities Association. The fact book will also use available regional and national information to put Tennessee's data in context.

    The fact book will address the topics of access, efficiency, productivity, and quality as indicated by the following performance categories and illustrative indicators:

    (1) Student preparation, such as, admission rates, freshman class profiles, and learning support placement and success rates, by subject area;
    (2) Student participation, such as college-going rates, overall enrollment, and enrollment by critical student subpopulations;
    (3) Student progression, such as end-of-term enrollment counts, freshman-to-sophomore retention rates, the number of students passing credit hour benchmarks under the higher education funding formula and lottery scholarship renewal rates;
    (4) Student success and completion, such as student transfer activity and subsequent academic performance, graduation rates, time to degree, credentials awarded, and credentials awarded per one hundred (100) full-time equivalent enrolled students;
    (5) Workforce participation, such as labor market supply and demand, employer satisfaction survey results, job placement rates, and licensure passage rates;
    (6) Academic trends, such as student engagement survey results, changes to the academic program inventory, low-producing academic programs, the number and percentage of accredited programs, and the percentage of lower division instructional courses taught by full-time faculty, part-time faculty and graduate assistants;
    (7) Financing trends, such as state appropriation levels and net tuition revenues, state and total subsidies per student, and degree costs; and
    (8) Affordability trends, such as in-state and out-of-state tuition rates, net costs of attendance, and need-based and merit-based student financial aid.

    The fact book will be published prior to March 15 each year, or as soon as practicable upon receipt of necessary student data from the systems and other sources. The fact book will be made available in web-based and printable formats.

    Present law requires THEC to develop, after consultation with the board of regents and the University of Tennessee board of trustees, policies and formulae or guidelines for fair and equitable distribution and use of public funds among the state's institutions of higher learning that are consistent with and further the goals of the statewide master plan. This amendment clarifies provisions relating to this duty, such as the requirement that before any subsequent amendment or revision to the formulae or guidelines for fair and equitable distribution and use of public funds among the state's institutions of higher education may become effective, the amendment or revision must be presented to the education and finance, ways and means committees of the senate and house of representatives for review and recommendation. This amendment also clarifies the requirement that THEC create a review committee to aid in development or revision of the higher education master plan and funding formulae, and clarifies the membership and duties of the committee.

    Under present law, THEC must provide assistance to the general assembly and to TSAC by researching and analyzing data concerning lottery-funded scholarship and grant programs including, but not limited to, student success and scholarship retention. THEC must report its findings annually to the education committee of the senate and the education committee of the house of representatives before the second Tuesday in January. This amendment changes the reporting date from "before the second Tuesday in January" to "by March 15".
