"D.  Full funding for the operation of The Commonwealth Governor's School in Northeastern Virginia is contingent upon the provision of full Governor's School services and activities by September 30, 1997.  Any delay in the provision of full Governor's School services and activities will result in a corresponding reduction in state funding for enrollment.  To the extent that full services and activities are not provided by September 30, 1997, an amount not to exceed $100,000 from the unused enrollment funding may be allocated for final implementation.  Funding is also contingent upon satisfaction of the Board of Education's requirements as set forth on January 9, 1997. However, the Board's requirement of approval received from the International Baccalaureate organization shall be met by the Commonwealth Governor's School applying to the International Baccalaureate Program in the first year of the School's operation, and the International Baccalaureate organization grants the School permission to offer International Baccalaureate courses that would result in qualified ninth graders in the class of 2000-2001 receiving the International Baccalaureate upon their graduation."

(This amendment provides state support for the Commonwealth Governor's School in the second year. The school will serve students in the counties of Caroline, Fluvanna, King George, Louisa, Orange, Spotsylvania, and Stafford and the City of Fredericksburg.)
