Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the School Code. Establishes the Illinois Hope and Opportunity Pathways through Education (IHOPE) Program to develop a comprehensive system in this State to re-enroll significant numbers of high school dropouts in programs that will enable them to earn their high school diploma. Requires the State Board of Education to implement and administer the IHOPE Program. Provides that the IHOPE Program shall award grants to educational service regions and the Chicago school district from appropriated funds to assist in establishing instructional programs and other services designed to re-enroll high school dropouts. Provides that the IHOPE Program shall provide incentive grant funds for regional offices of education and the Chicago school district to develop partnerships with school districts, public community colleges, and community groups to build comprehensive plans to re-enroll high school dropouts in their regions or districts. Sets forth requirements for programs funded through the IHOPE Program. Provides for an IHOPE Plan, sub-grants, how funding is distributed, State aid, categories of programming, the evaluation of programs, and rules. Effective July 1, 2009.

Senate Floor Amendment No. 2
Deletes everything after the enacting clause. Reinserts the contents of the bill as introduced, with the following changes. Provides that the awarding of grants under the IHOPE Program is subject to appropriation. Provides that from any funds appropriated for the IHOPE Program, the State Board of Education may use up to 5% for administrative costs, including the performance of a program evaluation and the hiring of staff to implement and administer the program. Makes changes concerning the requirements for programs funded through the IHOPE Program and the students in those programs and the requirements for claiming State aid for students enrolled in a program funded by the IHOPE Program. Provides that programs funded through the IHOPE Program must report certain data to the State Board of Education as requested (instead of requiring these programs to be evaluated by the State Board using specified criteria). Effective July 1, 2009.
