(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 percent of the federal poverty line will be served. There is a companion amendment in DOE Central Office for the remainder of the funds.)
