(This amendment adds $475,998 the second year from the general fund to provide funding to the school divisions. The $475,998 is based on a calculation of changing the K-3 Class Size Reduction funding formula to use the higher of statewide average per pupil cost of all divisions or the actual division per pupil cost for any school division in a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Board of Education (BOE). Currently, Richmond City, Petersburg and Greensville school divisions have a MOU with the BOE.)
