        Amends the Article concerning certification of  teachers  in  the      
   School  Code.   Removes the limit on the number of new participants in      
   the  alternative  certification   program.    Reduces   the   previous      
   experience requirement from 5 years to 2.  Effective immediately.           
        HOUSE AMENDMENT NO. 1.

   alternative certificate program shall be limited to  new  participants      
   not  to  exceed  the  number  of unfilled positions as reported to the
