1)  kindergarten; or
2)  kindergarten and first grade; or
3)  kindergarten, first, and second grades; or
4)  kindergarten, first, second, and third grades.
School divisions that choose sequence 1, 2, or 3 will only receive state funding for the grades in that sequence."

(This amendment would allow each school division to continue to determine whether its early reading intervention program will be offered in kindergarten only; in kindergarten and first grade; in kindergarten, first, and second grades; or in kindergarten through third grade. Nonparticipation savings of $1.0 million is anticipated.)
