(This amendment provides $90,000 in each year for the Soundscapes program in Newport News Public Schools, which allows students the opportunity for intensive music study. The program takes place daily after school and includes students from 2nd to12th grade. The program teaches students to work effectively with others; analyze, critique, and change situations; dedicate time to a specific discipline to grow and improve; and accept failure as a necessary and important part of learning and growth.)
