AN ACT Relating to ALL KIDS CAN LEARN incentive grants; adding new sections to Title 28A RCW; and creating a new section.




          NEW SECTION.  Sec. 1.     As we face a more complex society and increasing demands are placed on schools and the services they provide for children, it is important that each school and school district determine the role it is to play.  In addition to determining their roles, school districts need to be able to implement the plans established using research and practices that work.  School districts need incentives to develop and implement mission plans that produce more learning for more students.  To develop their visions, school districts must determine what it is that they want and what it is that they have or know.  These determinations will enable school districts to develop a vision of what the school districts are trying to accomplish and enable all parties involved to direct all activities in each school in the school district to make the vision come true.


          NEW SECTION.  Sec. 2.     In recognition of the importance of the process of defining district purposes and systematically working to achieve the desired results using research and practices that work, the legislature creates the all kids can learn incentive grants.


          NEW SECTION.  Sec. 3.     The superintendent of public instruction may grant funds to school districts for schools to plan and implement outcome-based education programs.  Such grants shall carry out the purposes of the basic education act.  Grants shall be of sufficient size and scope, shall be granted for a five-year period, shall be subject to appropriations, and shall conform to the principles underlying the outcomes-driven education process.


          NEW SECTION.  Sec. 4.     Sections 2 and 3 of this act are each added to Title 28A RCW.

                                                                                                                           Passed the House March 3, 1990.


                                                                                                                                         Speaker of the House.
