Provides that grants may be awarded to eligible schools only once every 3 years and that a grant must be no less than $250 and no more than $3,000, unless otherwise authorized.

House Floor Amendment No. 1
Deletes reference to:
30 ILCS 105/5.675 new

Deletes everything after the enacting clause. Amends the School Code. Subject to appropriation, provides that funding for civic education professional development for high school teachers must be provided by line item appropriation made to the State Board of Education for that purpose. Requires the State Board of Education to provide this funding to each regional superintendent of schools based on high school enrollment as reported on the State Board of Education's most recent fall enrollment and housing report, except provides that 20% of each annual appropriation must be reserved for the Chicago school district. Provides that in order to establish eligibility for one or more of its schools to receive funding, a school district shall submit to its regional superintendent an application, accompanied by a completed civic audit, for each school. Provides that a regional superintendent shall award funds to a district based on the number of teachers identified by the district to receive professional development multiplied by $250. Provides that the civic audit form and its content must be designed and updated as deemed necessary by the Illinois Civic Mission Coalition, data from completed civic audits must be processed by the Illinois Civic Mission Coalition, and the civic audit must be made available by the Illinois Civic Mission Coalition and must be designed to provide teachers and principals with a blueprint to better understand how current curriculum, service learning, and extracurricular activities are providing civic learning experiences for their students. Effective immediately.
