Amend the amendment by relettering or renumbering any nonconsecutive Part letter or section number to read consecutively.
This amendment removes the mandate preamble and requires the Department of Education, if funds are available, to make annual grants to school administrative units to fund the costs of transition to proficiency-based graduation standards for the awarding of high school diplomas. The grants are equal to 1/10 of 1% of a school administrative unit's total cost of education. The amendment also extends the date for implementation of the new system by one year for each year in which transition grants are not made or for which levels of general purpose aid for local schools fall below school year 2012-2013 levels.
