(This amendment removes funding for the homework assistance program, a program operating in grades 3 through 5 in selected schools. School divisions where the program has been effective for remediation may use their portion of the Standards of Learning Remediation funding provided in Item 138, in part, for this purpose. Item 138 includes $14.7 million the first year and $15.8 million the second year to assist students who are not achieving on the Standards of Learning tests administered in grades 3, 5, and 8, and the end-of-course tests administered at the high school level.)
