(This amendment provides $1.5 million the second year from the general fund to increase support for the Virginia Tiered System of Supports to $1.9 million annually allowing expansion of the system to additional school divisions. The program provides support, technical assistance and coaching for school staff to help reduce disruptive classroom behavior by providing positive behavior interventions and supports. This recommendation was included in JLARC's report "Pandemic Impact on K-12 Public Education" and is also a recommendation of the Behavioral Health Commission.)
