  Section  1.  (a)  The  commissioner of education is hereby directed to
establish a pilot program to provide early  screening  and  intervention

urban setting, one of which shall be located in a suburban setting,  and
one  of  which  shall be located in a rural setting. Any school district
selected to participate in the pilot program may establish a partnership
with a regional library or library system  for  purposes  of  the  pilot
program. To be considered for the pilot program, a school district shall
submit a proposal to the commissioner which:

  (3)  includes  a methodology for evaluating the effects of the reading
program on the children's identified risk factors.
  (b) The goal of the pilot program shall be to demonstrate and evaluate

risk factors for dyslexia and to evaluate  whether  those  programs  can
reduce future special education costs.
  (c) The commissioner shall establish guidelines and procedures for the
pilot  program.  The  commissioner  shall consult with the international
