Item 141 #5c

Education: Elementary and Secondary
Direct Aid To Public Education

Page 112, after line 43, insert:
"E.  Regular school year Governor's Schools are funded through this item based on the state's share of the incremental per pupil cost for providing such programs for each student attending a Governor's School, up to a cap of 800 students per Governor's School.  This incremental per pupil payment shall be adjusted for the composite index of the school division that counts such students attending an academic year Governor's School in their Average Daily Membership.  It is the intent of the General Assembly that this incremental per pupil amount be in addition to the basic aid per pupil funding provided to the affected school division for such students.  Therefore, local school divisions are encouraged to provide the appropriate portion of the basic aid per pupil funding to the Governor's Schools for students attending these programs, adjusted for costs incurred by the school division for transportation, administration, and any portion of the day that the student does not attend a Governor's School.  Each Governor's School shall report to the Department of Education the amount of state funding it received from the incremental and basic aid per pupil amounts, by school division, for the 1998-99 school year.  This information shall be reported by the Department of Education to the Chairmen of the House Appropriations and Senate Finance Committees as soon as it is available."
Page 112, line 44, strike "E." and insert "F."
