"This appropriation includes funding for the Standards of Quality salary payments in the second year for support positions in school divisions of the localities set out below and have been adjusted for the equivalent portion of the Cost of Competing Adjustment (COCA) rates that are paid to the local school divisions in Planning District 8 for SOQ Basic Aid support positions, which is 9.83 percent in the second year.  For the counties of Stafford, Fauquier, and Culpeper, the SOQ payments have been increased the second year by 25 percent of the COCA rates paid to school divisions in Planning District 8."
