"l. An additional payment of $950,000 the first year from the general fund shall be paid to Petersburg Public Schools for a state-of-the-art technology program."

(This amendment provides $950,000 the first year from the general fund to Petersburg Public Schools for the installation of infrastructure, hardware, software, and related system components. The new system will enable students to utilize instructional programs to address specific learning needs at their own pace as well as provide a more efficient and effective method for school staff to track enrollments, attendance, student progress and grades. The fund will enable the school system to replace obsolete hardware, meet a five-to-one student to computer ratio, and accommodate an anticipated increase in student enrollment from the BRAC expansion at Fort Lee.)
