          Same as SBE fiscal note.                                             
        HOUSE AMENDMENT NO. 1.                                                 
          Adds reference to:                                                   
          105 ILCS 5/10-17a               from Ch. 122, par. 10-17a            
        Deletes everything.  Amends  the  School  Code.   Provides  that,      
   beginning  with  the  2001-2002  school  year,  public  elementary and      
   secondary schools may incorporate  activities  to  address  intergroup      
   conflict, with the objectives of improving intergroup relations on and      
   beyond  the school campus, defusing intergroup tensions, and promoting      
   peaceful resolution of conflict.  For the  2001-2002,  2002-2003,  and      
   2003-2004  school  years,  requires  a school district's school report      
   card assessing the performance of its schools and students to indicate      
   whether or not  the  district  incorporates  anti-bias  education  and      
   intergroup  conflict  resolution as part of its activities.  Effective
