(This amendment provides $2.0 million GF to increase the allocation formula for the Virginia Preschool Initiative program to $6,500 for full-day programs and to $3,249.50 for half-day programs. Providing high quality pre-kindergarten programs makes it more likely that low income children will enter school ready to learn.)
