(This amendment provides funding to finish the development and begin administration of separate History Standards of Learning tests in grades 5 through 8. Funding for development of the tests ($977,985) was removed in the introduced budget. No funding was provided for the administration of the tests in Chapter 899. Both the development and administration costs would be covered with the adoption of this amendment. In addition, language in the introduced budget overriding the Code of Virginia, which currently requires the separate tests, is removed.)
