(This amendment captures savings each year by eliminating stand-alone funding for teaching materials. This represents the remaining amount included as incentive payments in the 1997-98 base year, which was counted again when textbook per pupil amounts were recalculated for the Standards of Quality funding for the 2002-2004 biennium. Textbook funding increased from $37.71 per pupil for the 1998-2000 biennium to $82.06 per pupil for the 2002-2004 biennium.)
