Page 140, after line 10, insert:

"i. Out of this appropriation, $100,000 the first year from the general fund is available for the Department of Education to develop, in collaboration with the schools divisions and community colleges in the Roanoke Valley region, a model proposal that establishes a Regional Career and Technical Governor's School Center."


(This amendment provides a one-time allocation of $100,000 in the first year from the general fund to develop a regional Career and Technical Governor's School Center in the Roanoke Valley area. The surrounding school divisions and local community college will offer dual enrollment to high school students that focus on regional industry needs such as coding/games/App design, cyber security, and automotive ASE certified technicians. There is a companion amendment in Item 137 for an offsetting savings.)
