(This amendment removes the funding cap on Governor's Schools of 1,300 students per school. Removing the cap would allow the Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology in Fairfax to receive the state share of funding for all of its students, projected to total 1,720 in 2005-2006. The next largest of the state's 16 Governor's Schools is Maggie Walker in Richmond with projected 2005-2006 enrollment of 642. This amendment also updates the date of the maintenance of effort requirement for local funding for the school.)
