(This amendment saves $200,000 and two full-time positions the second year from the general fund for a new Start Strong Council Initiative pilot project that would expand the current Virginia Preschool Initiative (VPI) and would change the program's intent of serving only at-risk students to serving all four-old-years. The two positions would have coordinated the 6 pilots. Secondly, the pilot program would have required private providers to participate in each of the pilots.)
