"Z.  Out of this appropriation, $868,000 the second year from the general fund is provided for the Career Coaches program."

(This amendment provides $868,000 from the second year from the general fund for the Career Coaches program. Career Coaches are community college employees who work in the high schools as resource specialists for career planning. The program has enjoyed tremendous growth due to its popularity with the high schools and the business community. This funding would sustain and expand this model. Some one-time funding that supports the program will expire at the end of FY 2007.)
