It is the intent of the Legislature in enacting this chapter to assist in the establishment of specialized high schools in the state to provide advanced instruction and training in high technology fields and in the performing arts.
The Legislature recognizes that the establishment of these specialized high schools will benefit the state economy by providing opportunities to talented pupils to obtain enhanced learning opportunities in high technology fields and in the performing arts while enrolled in schools located in school districts in close proximity to areas in which these industries are located.
The Legislature also recognizes that the high technology specialized high schools established under this chapter will enable the faculty providing instruction in these schools to develop model curricula of general application in the fields of mathematics, science, performing arts, and computer technology to be made available to other school districts in the public school system.
