Provides for a 3-year phase-in of the program: (1) for FY2010, requires a pilot program in DuPage County; (2) in addition, for FY2011, requires the Department to make training and technology resources available to the State Superintendent of Education to provide secondary school students statewide with skills they need for higher education and employment; and (3) in addition, for FY2012, requires the Department to develop a community-integrated living arrangement (CILA) pilot program that emphasizes the use of technology. Requires reports to the General Assembly concerning the operation of the pilot programs, and authorizes the Department to expand the pilot programs to other areas of the State. Makes implementation of the program subject to appropriations.
