"P. Out of this appropriation, $1,500,000 the first year and $1,750,000 the second year from the general fund is designated for the Guidance to Postsecondary Success program.  The program coordinates statewide efforts to increase college access and student success.".


(This amendment provides $1.5 million and 1 general fund position to maintain the Guidance to Postsecondary Success Program. Virginia will not meet its goal of becoming number one in the country for adult credential attainment at 70 percent without engaging populations that have traditionally not attended higher education. The GPS initiative focuses on enhancing existing efforts such as SCHEV's 1-2-3 Go! initiative to help students prepare, apply, and pay for college through awareness campaigns and events. It also includes coordinating professional development for secondary and access-provider staff, increasing advising capacity in underserved high schools, supporting early college testing for students in high school, and improving financial aid application completion activities.)
