(This amendment reflects the funding for year one of a four-year award from the federal preschool expansion grant, January 1, 2015 to December 31, 2018. The VPI+ model includes research-tested professional development and curriculum, community partnerships, and comprehensive services and pathways to fully engage parents and families. Participating localities, selected based on unmet need/unused slots, not meeting the kindergarten literacy assessment benchmark, and poverty concentration, include Brunswick, Chesterfield, Fairfax, Giles, Henrico, Norfolk, Petersburg, Prince William, Richmond, Sussex, and Winchester. By the end of the grant period, over 3,100 four-year-olds at or below 200% of the federal poverty level are projected to be served. There is a companion amendment in Direct Aid for the allocation of the remainder of the federal grant funds awarded.)
