Virginia's Learning Acceleration Grant

To address the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on students' educational progress and well-being, Governor Glenn Youngkin announced the availability of $30 million in the K-12 Learning Acceleration Grant to be used for qualifying education services. Grants are being awarded on a first-come, first-served basis.

If your child qualifies, the grant money that families receive must be used at an approved vendor. We are happy to share that The Reading Language Learning Center (RLLC) is an approved vendor for this grant.
