"m.) The Department of Education shall establish a pilot program to allow school divisions in a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Board of Education (BOE), with unused Virginia Preschool Initiative slots in fiscal year 2019 to enroll three-year-old children who would otherwise meet the program's eligibility requirements into the program.  Such enrollment of three-year-old children shall be limited to the number of unused slots in fiscal year 2019 but the total Virginia Preschool Initiative enrollment shall not exceed total slots allocated to such school division for fiscal year 2020. Currently, Richmond City, Petersburg, and Greensville school divisions have a MOU with the BOE.  The pilot program will expire June 30, 2020. "
