(This amendment establishes a pilot program to allow school divisions that are in an MOU with the Board of Education and with unused VPI slots in the first year to enroll 3-year-old children who would otherwise meet VPI eligibility requirements. Enrollment shall be limited to the number of unused VPI slots in FY19 but total VPI enrollment shall not exceed total slots allocated to school division for FY20. The pilot program shall expire June 30, 2020, unless reenacted in the 2020-22 appropriation act. Currently, Richmond City, Petersburg, and Greensville school divisions have an MOU with the BOE.)
