(This amendment provides funding to expand the Governor's initiative to provide additional instructional support to 26 schools that are chronically underperforming to all 485 schools required to implement plans to narrow achievement gaps under the Virginia's No Child Left Behind Act federal waiver. The funds correspond to the amounts JLARC recommended in its 2011 study on promoting third grade reading performance.)
