SCH CD-PROMOTION GRANTS                                                    

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the School Code.  Creates a student promotion policy grant      
   program to be implemented and  administered  by  the  State  Board  of      
   Education.   Provides  for  the  award of grants by the State Board of      
   Education, from appropriations made for purposes of  the  program,  to      
   school  districts  that  establish  and  implement a student promotion      
   policy.  Provides that a school district is not eligible to receive  a      
   grant  unless  its student promotion policy includes, for students who      
   do not qualify for or may require  remedial  assistance  in  order  to      
   qualify  for  promotion  to  the  next  higher  grade, a summer bridge      
   program  of  no  less  than  90  hours  or  a  program  of   increased      
   instructional  time under which students receiving remedial assistance      
   receive more clock hours of instruction in a  school  day  and  school      
   week   than   are   required  for  non-remedial  assistance  students.      
   Effective July 1, 1999.                                                     
          FISCAL NOTE (State Board of Education)                               
          Administrative costs would be minimal; costs for additional          
          student services grants would be significant, but cannot be          
          estimated. Current summer school services funding totals             
          $1,548,500 for General State Aid, and $3,395,600 for special         
          STATE MANDATES NOTE (State Board of Education)                       
          Same as SBE fiscal note.
