is the intention of the legislature to amend certain provisions  of  the
education law to ensure that the necessary funding is available in those
districts  to  help  them  provide  all their children an opportunity to
receive a meaningful high  school  education  and  to  maintain  healthy
vibrant educational communities that underpin a thriving state economy.

District successful schools act".
