Item 150 #1c

First Year - FY2003 Second Year - FY2004
Education: Elementary and Secondary
Direct Aid To Public Education FY2003 $0 FY2004 $21,171 GF

Page 161, line 23, strike "$11,852,830" and insert "$11,874,001".
Page 162, line 20, after "D." , insert "1."
Page 162, line 24, after "students", insert:  
"the first year and 1,300 students the second year".
Page 162, after line 38, insert:
"2. Fairfax County Public Schools shall not reduce local per pupil funding for the Thomas Jefferson Governor's School below the amounts appropriated for the 2002-2003 school year."

(This amendment increases the cap on Governor's Schools' enrollment for funding purposes from 1,275 to 1,300. The only school that would be immediately affected is the Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology in Fairfax. Increasing the cap would allow the school to receive the state share of funding for more of its students. In addition, it inserts a "maintenance of effort" requirement for local funding.)
