(This amendment provides $500,000 from the general fund in the second year to improve student retention at Clinch Valley College. Success in math is a critical factor in student retention, and four additional faculty will make it possible to reduce the student-faculty ratio in freshman mathematics to no more than 25 to 1. The current ratio results in class sizes of 37 to 45 students.)
