(This amendment funds the administration of the Virginia Virtual School through the hiring of 4.0 FTE and Board costs in order to create and start-up the school. Staff should be hired by January 1, 2017 in order to be ready for the School in the 2017-18 school year. Once students have enrolled in the Virginia Virtual School in the fall of 2017, the costs of the administration of the school will be provided for by the multi-division on-lone providers that contract to provide full-time virtual programs with the School. House Bill 324 to create the Virginia Virtual School passed the 2015 General Assembly with a re-enactment clause and was signed by the Governor.)
