(This amendment increases first year funding for the Staunton AVID program. The program aims to prepare middle and high school students for eligibility and success in four-year colleges and universities. The program began with students in the 7th grade and has been successful in increasing the enrollment of under-represented and low-income students in advanced middle and high school courses and in post-secondary education. Staunton has expanded the program to serve 6th and 8th grade students without additional funding. The amendment would provide funding to expand the program to 9th graders in the first year of the biennium.)
