Direct Aid To Public Education

Page 130, strike lines 14 through 20, and insert:
"c.  For any school division certifying that its high schools meet the goals established in paragraph a) above, the school division shall be allowed to use that portion of its Literary Fund moneys at middle or elementary schools for instructional technology."
Page 130, line 32, after "Learning", strike test, and insert "high school end of course tests".

(This amendment would allow school divisions that have invested past technology funding into high schools, and can meet the goal of web-based testing as a result, to use the funding proposed for technology in the introduced budget for elementary or middle schools instead.)
