Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Board of Higher Education Act. Makes a technical change in a Section concerning advising and counseling the Governor.

Senate Floor Amendment No. 1
Deletes reference to:
110 ILCS 205/9.03
Adds reference to:
110 ILCS 805/2.24 new

Deletes everything after the enacting clause. Amends the Public Community College Act. Subject to appropriation, requires the Illinois Community College Board to create a 3-year pilot project, to be known as the College and Career Readiness Pilot Program, to (1) diagnose college readiness by developing a system to align ACT scores to specific community college courses in developmental and freshman curriculums; (2) reduce remediation by decreasing the need for remedial coursework in mathematics, reading, and writing at the college level; (3) align high school and college curriculums; (4) provide resources and academic support to students to enrich the senior year of high school through remedial or advanced coursework and other interventions; and (5) develop an appropriate evaluation process to measure the effectiveness of readiness intervention strategies. Provides that the first year of the program shall begin with the high school class of 2008, with the Board selecting 4 community colleges to participate in the program. Sets forth provisions with regard to selection criteria; analyzing courses; creating a data-sharing agreement, a Readiness Prescription for a student, and college and career readiness teams; developing an evaluation process, and establishing operational processes and a budget. Sets forth the duties of the Board with respect to the second and third years of the program.

House Committee Amendment No. 1
Adds an immediate effective date.

 Fiscal Note (Illinois Community College Board)
 SB 858, as amended, would cost approximately $750,000 during the first year of the pilot program it proposes. That amount may increase as additional community colleges are added to the program in the two subsequent years of the proposed three-year pilot.
