House Floor Amendment No. 1
Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Reinserts the provisions of the introduced bill with the following changes. Provides that goal of the grant program is to promote school safety and healthy learning environments by reducing the reliance on law enforcement to address school disciplinary matters and implementing alternative strategies that will better address the full range of students' intellectual, social, emotional, physical, psychological, and moral developmental needs. Makes changes to grant eligibility. Provides that the State Board of Education shall have discretion to choose the number of school districts that will receive funds as well as the amount of their grant awards, with the highest-scoring school districts receiving priority. Effective July 1, 2018.

House Floor Amendment No. 3
With respect to the Safe Schools and Healthy Learning Environments Program, provides that the General Assembly recognizes that some (rather than many) schools are overly reliant on law enforcement personnel. Removes a provision stating that the General Assembly recognizes the use of school-based law enforcement has not been proven effective as a strategy to promote safe and productive schools. Removes a provision allowing grant funds to be used to transition from school-based law enforcement personnel to alternative patrol structures.

Senate Floor Amendment No. 5
Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Amends the School Code. With respect to school discipline improvement plans, makes changes to how the State Board of Education determines the top 20% of school districts, when notification is given that a plan must be submitted, which school districts are required to submit a plan, the timeframe for school board approval of a plan and submission of that plan to the State Board, and when additional annual progress reports are required. Establishes the Safe Schools and Healthy Learning Environments Grant Program and grants under the program. Sets forth requirements for grant applicants and provisions for the distribution of funds appropriated for the program. Requires the State Board of Education to issue a yearly report on the results of the program in cooperation with school districts participating in the program. Provides that the State Board may adopt any rules necessary for the program. Effective July 1, 2018.

Governor Amendatory Veto Message
Recommends deleting a provision prohibiting a school district from using grant funds under the Safe Schools and Healthy Learning Environments Grant Program to increase school-based law enforcement or security personnel.
