Walker Governor's School for Government and International Studies, and Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology shall include an additional per pupil amount in the first year."

(This amendment provides additional "bridge funding," by increasing by $95 the per pupil amount included in the budget as introduced, for the three full-day Governor's Schools pending the recommendation of the study to be conducted by the Secretary of Education. Currently, part-day programs are funded at 5/6 of the per pupil amount and 6/6 amounts for full-day regular school year Governor's Schools that provide high school diploma programs, namely Thomas Jefferson School for Science and Technology, Maggie L. Walker Governor's School, and Appomattox Regional Governor's School for the Arts and Technology. This amendment also adds a due date of October 1, 2014 to the language under the Office of the Secretary of Education.)
