"2.  Regular school year Governor's Schools are funded through this item based on the state's share of $2,765 for each student attending a Governor's School, up to a cap of 800 students per Governor's School.  This per pupil payment shall be adjusted for the composite index of the school division that counts such students attending Governor's Schools in their average daily membership.  This per pupil amount shall be in addition to the basic aid per pupil funding provided to the affected school division for such students.  This additional per pupil amount plus an appropriate portion of the basic aid per pupil funding attributable to any student attending a Governor's School shall constitute the state's contribution to Governor's School funding.  School divisions may adjust this basic aid per pupil payment to reflect 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.  The basic aid per pupil funding remaining after such adjustment shall be passed to the appropriate Governor's School.
3.  The state's share of payments for summer residential Governor's Schools and Foreign Language Academies shall be based on the greater of the composite index or fifty percent."

(This amendment clarifies that state funding for regular school year Governor's School students includes the state's Basic Aid payments for such students, and directs participating school divisions to pass increases in Basic Aid funding for Governor's School students on to the Governor's Schools.)
