(This amendment increases the per pupil amount for the Virginia Preschool Initiative for At-Risk Four-Year-Olds to $9,000 for those school divisions in Planning District 8. The current funded amount is $6,000 per child, and is unchanged for all other school divisions. Currently, such divisions as Fairfax, Loudoun, Prince William, are not using all their allotted slots. For purposes of this budget amendment request, the current participation level is maintained. If this additional funding achieves the desired intent of increasing participation levels, the actual cost would be higher.)
