Page 130, after line 24, insert "i.  An additional payment estimated at $28,400,000 in the second year from the general fund shall be disbursed by the Department of Education to local school divisions to reimburse school divisions for administrative software purchases and on-going software maintenance."

(This amendment provides funds for the cost of updating the local portion of the statewide public eduction information management system. The system was purchased by the Commonwealth for local school divisions 10 years ago and needs to be replaced in order for school divisions to receive support from the vendor, and to support new information requirements of the Standards of Accreditation and recently adopted legislation. A companion amendment is included in Item 129 to provide funding for the Department of Education's information systems. Of the total costs in this amendment, $24.4 million is a one-time cost, and $4.0 million is estimated to be an on-going maintenance cost.)
