(a) He or she teaches in a school operated by an eligible school district.
(b) He or she does not appear on the statewide support lien docket under s. 17

subsection is $1,000 for the first school year, $2,000 for the 2nd school year, $2,000 2
for the 3rd school year, $2,000 for the 4th school year, and $3,000 for the 5th school 3
