Direct Aid to Public Education


Page 122, line 56, remove "After the third consecutive year of successful participation, an eligible school's grant shall be based on a shared split of the grant between the state and participating school divisions's local composite index."  


(This amendment removes language that penalizes the successful transition to an extended school year schedule. Initial grant awards may be up to $300,000 per school for up to two years after the initial implementation period, or $400,000 in the case of schools that have a Denied Accreditation status.)
