Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the School Code.  Creates a K-5 class size reduction grant      
   program to be implemented and  administered  by  the  State  Board  of      
   Education.   Provides  for  the  award of grants by the State Board of

   school  districts that maintain grades K-5, have an average class size      
   for any such grade of at least 23 pupils per classroom at the time  of      
   applying  for a grant, and agree as a condition of the grant to reduce
