(This amendment provides $225,000 the second year from the general fund to fund the Virginia Student Training and Refurbishment Program (VA STAR) which is the result of a collaborative effort of the Secretaries of Education and Technology and the Department of Education and General Services to introduce students to the field of Information Technology. The program's goal is to create a sustainable educational program that takes surplus hardware from state agencies or private companies in order to offer students IT repair certification. The refurbished computers are available for school use, distribution to students' families, or community foundations needing them.)
