CONCURRENT RESOLUTIONS

SENATE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION NO. 14

WHEREAS, the people of the state of Missouri view with growing concern the proliferation and buildup of nuclear, chemical and biological weapons of mass destruction and missile delivery systems for these weapons in the hands of hostile, or potentially hostile, and unstable foreign regimes; and

WHEREAS, the tragedy of September 11, 2002 shows that America is vulnerable to attack by foreign enemies; and

WHEREAS, North Korea has clearly established its intention to proceed with the further development of its offensive ballistic missiles and nuclear armaments, either as instruments of blackmail and extortion or for operational deployment, thereby contravening all previous nonproliferation agreements and understandings, with the effect of threatening the security of South Korea, Japan and the United States; and

WHEREAS, the people of the state of Missouri wish to affirm their support of the Government of the United States to take all action necessary to protect the people of America and future generations, including from attacks by missiles capable of causing mass destruction and loss of American lives:

NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the members of the Missouri Senate, Ninety-Second General Assembly, First Regular Session, the House of Representatives concurring therein, hereby support the President of the United States to continue to take all actions necessary, directing the considerable scientific and technological capability of the great Union, to protect all fifty states and their people, our allies and our armed forces abroad from the threat of missile attack; and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the President of the United States and Congress be urged to consider that a nationwide, effective missile defense system will require the deployment of a robust, multi-layered architecture consisting of integrated land-based, sea-based and space-based capabilities to deter evolving future threats from missiles as weapons of mass destruction and to meet and destroy them when necessary; and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the President of the United States and Congress be urged to plan and fund a missile defense system beyond 2005 that would consolidate technological advancement and expansion from the limited applications currently planned; and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the Secretary of the Missouri Senate be instructed to prepare properly inscribed copies of this resolution for the President of the United States, President of the United States Senate, Speaker of the United States House of Representatives and the members of the Missouri Congressional delegation.

The program shall consist of grant awards made to public secondary schools that demonstrate a commitment to ensure that:

(1) All students be graduated from school;

(2) All students complete a selection of high school studies that is challenging and for which there are identified learning expectations; and

(3) All students proceed from high school graduation to a college or postsecondary vocational or technical school or high-wage job with work place skill development opportunities.

2. The state board of education shall promulgate rules and regulations for the approval of grants made under the program to schools that:

(1) Establish measurable districtwide performance standards for the goals of the program outlined in subsection 1 of this section; and

(2) Specify the knowledge, skills and competencies, in measurable terms, that students must demonstrate to successfully complete any individual course offered by the school, and any course of studies which will qualify a student for graduation from the school; and

(3) Do not offer a general track of courses that, upon completion, can lead to a high school diploma; and

(4) Require rigorous coursework with standards of competency in basic academic subjects for students pursuing vocational and technical education as prescribed by rule and regulation of the state board of education; and

The plan shall specify a mechanism to receive information on an annual basis from those who developed the plan in addition to senior citizens, community leaders, and teachers to update the plan in order to best meet the goals of the program as provided in subsection 1 of this section. Further, the plan shall detail the procedures used in the school to identify students that may drop out of school and the intervention services to be used to meet the needs of such students. The plan shall outline counseling and mentoring services provided to students who will enter the work force upon graduation from high school, address apprenticeship and intern programs, and shall contain procedures for the recruitment of volunteers from the community of the school to serve in schools receiving program grants.

3. By rule and regulation, the state board of education may determine a local school district variable fund match requirement in order for a school or schools in the district to receive a grant under the program. However, no school in any district shall receive a grant under the program unless the district designates a salaried employee to serve as the program coordinator, with the district assuming a minimum of one-half the cost of the salary and other benefits provided to the coordinator. Further, no school in any district shall receive a grant under the program unless the district makes available facilities and services for adult literacy training as specified by rule of the state board of education.

The provisions of other law to the contrary notwithstanding, the plan presented to the superintendent shall provide a summary waiver, with no conditions, for the pupil testing requirements pursuant to section 160.257 in the school. Further, the provisions of other law to the contrary notwithstanding, the plan shall detail a means for the waiver of requirements otherwise imposed on the school related to the authority of the state board of education to classify school districts pursuant to subdivision (9) of section 161.092, RSMo, and such other rules and regulations as determined by the commissioner of education, except such waivers shall be confined to the school and not other schools in the school district unless such other schools meet the requirements of this subsection. However, any waiver provided to any school as outlined in this subsection shall be void on June thirtieth of any school year in which the school fails to meet the requirements for the approval of the grants authorized by this section as specified in subsection 2 of this section.

7. The provisions of subsection 6 of this section shall not be interpreted to allow for any reimbursement to any four-year institutions of higher education, regardless of whether such reimbursements are made indirectly by means of a public community college or vocational or technical school. In order for any public community college or vocational or technical school to receive reimbursements pursuant to subsection 6 of this section, the qualifying student must exclusively attend a public community college or vocational or technical school.

[7.] 8. The commissioner of education shall develop a procedure for evaluating the effectiveness of the program described in this section.
