Page 191, line 20, after "plan", insert:

(This amendment requires each Academic Year Governor's School to post their diversity goals and implementation plans, and related annual progress reports to their websites. In 2020, language was added to the Appropriation Act requiring Academic Year Governor's Schools to (i) establish diversity goals for its student body and faculty, (ii) to develop a plan to meet such goals, and (iii) provide an annual progress report to the Governor including information about admissions processes, outreach and demographics; however, no requirement was included to make such information easily accessible to the public.)
