SB 1033 - The act states that the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education shall create a public school beautification adoption program and authorizes individuals, groups, and corporations to develop and implement programs to assist in maintaining and improving public school grounds and buildings.
After a local school board approves a potential sponsor's application, the application will go to the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education for review. Upon approval, the program becomes the sponsor's responsibility until said group ceases to perform its duties or until the local board revokes the sponsorship. Subject to appropriation, each year the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education will choose the ten most effective programs to receive grants of up to $10,000.
This act is identical to HB 1026 (2001).
