(This amendment includes dropout prevention services as one of the allowable uses of funding from the new Student Achievement Grants. The Student Achievement block grant, included as a policy change in the Governor's proposed budget, was composed of funds previously directed towards Dropout Prevention, School Health Incentive, and Technology Support. Under the block grant, it is at the discretion of the school division to use the funding for one or more of the following: K-3 Class Size Reduction, Early Reading Intervention, At-Risk Four-Year-Olds, SOL remediation, or Dropout Prevention. There is a companion amendment in Item 147.)
