School Dropout Demonstration Amendments. Committed to the Committee of the Whole House on the State of the Union. House of Representatives, 102nd Congress, 1st Session. Report, Together with Supplemental Views (To Accompany H.R. 2313).
Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. House Committee on Education and Labor.
This document is a formal analysis of and report on the House of Representative's Bill 2313, the School Dropout Demonstration Amendments; the Bill amends the School Dropout Demonstration Assistance Act of 1988, but authorizes continued funding for the original 1988 legislation, which established funding for dropout prevention programs, reentry programs, early intervention programs, and model systems for collecting and reporting information about dropouts. The report on the proposed legislation contains a brief introduction, a description of a hearing held concerning the Bill in Flint (Michigan), and a more detailed description of the background for the legislation (the original Bill, funding extensions, and the need for the legislation). Another section describes the following major changes outlined in the Bill: (1) allowing mentoring programs to be funded under this legislation; (2) increasing the reservation of funds for evaluation; (3) clarifying continuing eligibility of existing grantees; and (4) clarifying matching requirements. Subsequent sections note the committee approval for the Bill, an oversight statement, an inflationary impact statement, a Committee on Government Operations oversight statement, estimate of the cost for the legislation, and a section by section analysis of the Bill itself. Included is a statement by Representative C. A. Hayes, the original author of the 1988 legislation. (JB)
