(This amendment provides $300,000 GF each year for local school divisions to partner with the Virginia Alliance of YMCAs in a pilot, public-private partnership program to expand existing summer Power Scholars Academy Programs at the Greater Richmond YMCA and the YMCA of Central Virginia to reinforce the shared commitment to reducing the achievement gap and summer learning loss for Virginia's at-risk students at Title 1 schools. It is the intent that these funds be reappropriated from the decrease in Remedial Summer School costs already reflected in the introduced budget.)
