"5. Out of the Financial Assistance for General Education, the Board of Education shall provide $3,000,000 the first year and $3,000,000 the second year from the general fund to Richmond City Schools for the purposes of funding a comprehensive alternative school for secondary students who exhibit behavior and academic problems such that they are not able to be served in the regular comprehensive secondary schools."

(This amendment provides $3.0 million each year to Richmond City Schools to open a separate facility that will have its curriculum offerings focused toward addressing issues that deal with students who need comprehensive services in a nontraditional setting. The targeted group of students are those who are persistently disruptive, have been suspended out of school, and have assaulted other students.)
