CHAPTER 83

FORMERLY

SENATE BILL NO. 174

AS AMENDED BY SENATE AMENDMENT NO. 2

AN ACT MAKING A SUPPLEMENTARY APPROPRIATION TO THE STATE BOARD OF EDUCATION TO BE USED FOR A SUMMER PROGRAM IN SEVERAL SCHOOL DISTRICTS FOR THE TRAINABLE MENTALLY HANDICAPPED PUPILS.

WHEREAS, because a limited amount of money was available to fund summer projects after regular school year projects had been approved; under P.L. 89-313; and

WHEREAS, the problem has been somewhat alleviated because the Wallin Trainable School elected not to apply for a grant and the Bush School asked for a much reduced grant because building renovations limit what is possible to offer for the ensuing summer; and

WHEREAS, the need is most obvious to give these children a chance to participate in a wholesome five week program involving activities and skills which are excellent therapy as well as useful economic skills.

NOW, THEREFORE :

Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of Delaware:

Section 1. The sum of $37,174.00 is appropriated to the State Board of Education to provide for a summer program for the trainable mentally handicapped. The funds herein appropriated shall be distributed to the following schools:

Meadowood (Stanton)

$11,298.00

Ennis (Indian River)

8,534.00

Opportunity School (Wilmington)

10,500.00

 

$37,174.00

Section 2. The funds appropriated herein shall be paid by the State Treasurer from General Fund monies not otherwise appropriated.

Section 3. This is a supplementary appropriation act, and the funds appropriated herein which remain unexpended on June 30, 1974, shall revert to the General Fund.

Approved June 19, 1973.
