Governor

Governor Butch Otter (R)

Butch Otter

Gov. Butch Otter is a strong supporter of charter schools, signing into law (HB 481) a removal of the cap on the number of charter schools and allocating funds for charter school facilities. He supports school vouchers, and enacted reforms that phased out tenure for new teachers. With an incentive-pay plan for teachers who increased student performance, Gov. Otter took a step toward establishing a performance-based salary ladder for state teachers and some non-instructional school staff.
