(This amendment would remove the current cap of 1,275 students per Governor's School for purposes of computing the state share of payments to these schools. The only school which would be immediately affected is the Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology in Fairfax. In addition, language is added that would continue Governor's School payments as separate payments to localities.)
