(This amendment updates the per pupil amount for the Virginia Preschool Initiative for At-Risk Four-Year-Olds to $7,972, the FY 2012 rate used for federal Head Start. In addition, the Department shall update the per pupil amount each biennia at the same rate as the overall rebenchmarked level. The current funded amount is $6,000 per child. For purposes of this budget amendment request, the current participation level is maintained. If this additional funding increases participation levels, the actual cost would be higher.
