(This amendment provides funding for Bristol Virginia Public Schools to actively engage K-5 economically disadvantaged students in an extended school year beyond 180 (B180) days to improve learning, retention, and community building. B180 will use a 225 instructional day calendar. Estimated costs include staff for 45 additional days, fuel, and food. Success will be measured by attendance rates, STAR reading assessment or similar, and SOL benchmarks and assessments. Bristol was one of seven school divisions to apply for and receive a planning grant in FY 2014 for year round schooling.)
