(This amendment restores funding for all of the K-12 direct aid funding initiatives that were unallotted at reconvened session due to the pandemic and eliminated in the introduced budget. Among these initiatives include a 2% salary increase in each year, early childhood expansion, increases to the At-Risk Add-On, and increases to the Cost of Competing Adjustment. This amendment, along with a companion amendment in Item 145 to restore funding for additional school counselors, would restore K-12 direct aid funding to the level provided in the budget approved during the 2020 Regular Session.)
