(This amendment provides $50,000 GF in each year for Thomas Nelson Community College related to a STEM pilot program that would be established in SB 255. The program would allow students that have completed high school graduation requirements to take courses at a community college. Courses would be covered one-third by the parent, one-third by the local school board, and one-third by the community college. This would cover the anticipated costs at Thomas Nelson Community College.)
