Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of Delaware:

Section 1. § 1312, Title 14, Delaware Code is hereby repealed and a new § 1312 is substituted in lieu thereof to read as follows:

§ 1312. Experience

(a) In the case of a teacher, principal or superintendent, or other administrative employee, the term "years of experience" in determining salary in accordance with Section 1305, of this chapter, means years of service in any public school or regularly organized private school. Ninety-one days in any school year shall constitute one year of experience, but not more than one year of experience may be credited for any one calendar year. Years of service in the armed forces shall also be counted as years of experience in accordance with the rules and regulations adopted by the State Board of Education in this respect.

(b) In the case of personnel whose salaries are based wholly or in part upon Sections 1306, 1307, 1308, 1309, 1310, 1311, 1321 and 1322, of this chapter, experience shall be evaluated by the State Board of Education or the Board of Education of the City of Wilmington, as the case may be, taking into consideration the number of months and the nature of the services rendered.

Section 2. The provisions of this Act shall become effective as of July 1, 1961.

Approved August 31, 1961.
