     Your Committee received testimony in support of this bill
from the Department of Education.

     Your Committee finds that this bill will provide greater
flexibility for individual schools to design and offer a variety
of programs responsive to their students' needs, and will ensure
the adequacy of resources for doing so.

     Your Committee has amended this bill by:

     (1)  Amending section 13 of Act 216, Session Laws of Hawaii
          1997, and section 9 of Act 142, Session Laws of Hawaii
          1998, to prevent the amendments being made to sections
          36-27 and 36-30, Hawaii Revised Statutes, by this bill
          from being repealed upon the repeal and reenactment of
          these sections by operation of law on July 1, 2000, and
          July 31, 2003; and

     (2)  Making technical nonsubstantive changes for purposes of
          clarity, consistency, and style.

     As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your
Committee on Education that is attached to this report, your
Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of H.B. No.
1087, as amended herein, and recommends that it pass Second
Reading in the form attached hereto as H.B. No. 1087, H.D. 1, and
be referred to the Committee on Finance.
