        Revises the description of certain activities that  are  included      
   as  social  work  services.   Replaces  a provision stating that other      
   qualified professionals are not prohibited from providing those listed      
   services for which they are appropriately  trained  with  a  provision      
   stating  that  other  certified  professionals are not prohibited from

          FISCAL NOTE (State Board of Education)                               
          Potential fiscal impact is not known at this time. There could       
          be fiscal impact due to increased demands for IEP services.          
          There would be no significant cost to SBE.

          FISCAL NOTE, H-am 1 (State Board of Ed.)                             
          Potential fiscal impact on local school districts is not known       
          at this time. There could be fiscal impact via increased de-         
          mands for such services to be included on IEPs. There would be       
          no significant cost to the State Board of Ed.                        
          STATE MANDATES FISCAL NOTE, H-am 1

        SENATE AMENDMENT NO. 2.                                                
        Changes  the  description  of  specified  services  that  may  be      
   included among services that constitute "school social work services".      
   Deletes a listing of items that are included in a social-developmental      
   study that is conducted as part of the school social work services  in      
   a  case  study  evaluation.   Replaces  a  provision  authorizing such      
   individual, family, and group counseling services as a  school  social      
   worker  determines  necessary to maximize a student's potential with a      
   provision authorizing counseling with students, parents, and  teachers      
   in  accordance with rules governing the provision of related services,      
   provided a parent's written  permission  must  be  obtained  before  a      
   student participates in group counseling.  Eliminates a provision that      
   includes   as   school   social  work  services  the  development  and      
   implementation  of  a  conflict  resolution  program.    Replaces   an      
   authorization  to  provide  parent education and training in resolving      
   home-school issues with  a  provision  for  the  provision  of  parent      
   education  and  counseling  as  appropriate  in  relation to a child's      
   educational assessment.                                                     
        SENATE AMENDMENT NO. 3.

        Further amends the  School  Code.   Removes  the  provision  that      
   requires  the  Chicago  Board  of  Education,  after  its  members are      
   appointed, to elect from its number  a  secretary.   Provides  instead      
   that  the  secretary  shall  be  selected by the Board and shall be an      
   employee of the Board rather than a member of the Board.                    
        SENATE AMENDMENT NO. 4.

   low-income eligible pupil count from the earlier of the 2 most  recent      
   federal censuses.
