membership to pay for instructional programs intended to improve                                    
student performance.  Learning opportunity grants will provide the                                  
opportunity to move schools toward standards-based education,

available to pay for costs associated with improving student                                        
performance by developing standards-based programs, including                                       
implementation of standards, aligning student assessment to standards,                              
adopting instructional models based on basic skills, performance tasks,                             
and projects, and adopting a standards-based reporting system.                                      
Accomplishing this goal may include acquisition of text books and                                   
other educational material.

President Halford stated there was a technical problem with                                         
Amendment No. 3. The amendment should only refer to General                                         
Funds. President Halford stated that if there was no objection,                                     
Amendment No. 3 would only deal with General Funds. Without                                         
objection, it was so ordered.

President Halford stated that there was a technical problem with                                    
Amendment No. 5. President Halford stated, if there was no objection,                               
anything in Amendment No. 5 that refers to General Fund/Mental                                      
Health should be excluded. Without objection, it was so ordered.
