Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the School Code.  Requires  a  school  board  to  adopt  a      
   written  policy  regarding  a  minor's  access  to and use of a public      
   access computer for Internet connectivity.  Provides that the  written      
   policy  shall  require  public  access  computers  to be equipped with      
   software that seeks to prevent minors from gaining access to  explicit      
   sexual   materials  through  Internet  connectivity,  subject  to  the      
   availability of funds for this purpose from  the  Technology  Literacy      
   Challenge  Program  or  the Technology Success Grant Program. Provides      
   that the school board shall allow teachers or other  authorized  adult      
   employees  of  a  public  school  to circumvent the filter software to      
   allow certain minors to have unfiltered access to the Internet  or  an      
   online  service  for specific projects that have legitimate scientific      
   or educational purposes.                                                    
        HOUSE AMENDMENT NO. 1.                                                 
        Provides that funds for the  software  may  also  come  from  the      
   School  Safety and Educational Improvement Block Grant Program.  Makes      
   a technical change.
