"VCU Podium Foundation Continued Partnership          $0           $200,000".

(This amendment provides $200,000 from the general fund the second year for VCU Podium Foundation Continued Partnership to allow VCU to engage in the City of Richmond's program to expand literary awareness for Richmond Public Schools' students. The Podium meets the need of effective writing and communication that are critical to closing the persistent achievement gap among minority and low-income students. Effective public education teachers in challenged urban schools need a strong foundation of strategies and best practices to provide outstanding writing instruction to students. The Podium's mission and outreach to students and teachers include instructional, technological, classroom, student and professional resources.)
