Page 112, after line 39, insert:

"E. The Secretary of Education and the Secretary of Finance, in consultation with the Chairmen of the House Appropriations, Senate Finance, House Education, and Senate Education and Health Committees, shall develop a plan for full funding of the Board of Education's November 17, 2016, recommendations for the Standards of Quality, where those standards coincide with prevailing local practice. Such a plan will be based on the 2016 Annual Report on the Condition and Needs of Public Schools in Virginia and will include a schedule for reaching full funding levels by FY 2022 and will provide for gradual increases in funding levels in the intervening fiscal years. The plan shall be submitted to the Governor and the General Assembly prior to the beginning of the 2018 General Assembly session along with the plan's first installment in the proposed budget bill for the 2018-20 biennium."
