Page 120, after line 10, insert:
"f.  This appropriation includes an amount estimated at $400,000 the first year from the general fund for the state's share of $5.50 per pupil day for intersession days provided to students in schools at high risk of educational failure.  The payments shall be provided to school divisions which certify that they are providing schools with year-round calendars which include intersessions with instructional days beyond the required 180 days in accordance with procedures to be established by the Department of Education consistent with the provisions of Senate Bill 545.  The Department of Education is authorized to prorate these amounts to the extent these funds are not adequate to cover the full costs specified therein.  These funds shall be matched by the local government, based on the composite index of local ability-to-pay."

(This amendment provides funds for a year-round school pilot. It is estimated that there are 20 schools in 10 school divisions, serving approximately 7,100 students, which would qualify for this funding for the 2001 school year.)
