Education: Elementary and Secondary
Direct Aid To Public Education

Page 134, line 46, after "assessments.", insert:
"School divisions may also use this funding for students who may require remediation to perform adequately on the Standards of Learning assessments."
Page 135, after line 4, insert:
"d.  Any funds provided to school divisions in the first year for the Standards of Learning Remediation Program that are unexpended as of June 30, 1999, shall be carried on the books of the locality to be appropriated to the school division in the second year for use in the same program."

(This amendment would clarify that school divisions may provide remediation to students who have not yet taken the Standards of Learning assessments, if the students are not expected to perform well on the tests. Also, the amendment would allow school divisions to carry forward unexpended funding from the first to second year for the Standards of Learning Remediation Program.)
