DIFFERENCE (TOTAL RECOMMENDED AND EXISTING OPERATING BUDGET)

The total means of financing for this program is recommended at 92.8% of the existing operating budget. It represents 86.3% of the total request ($9,006,879) for this program. The increase in General Fund over the existing budget is primarily attributable to the addition of the LSYOU program; a JTPA – type job training program. The decrease in other means of financing reflects the transfer of the Title 1 Homeless Program, including 2 positions, to the Student and School Performance Program; the transfer of the Proprietary Schools Program, including 3 positions, to the Board of Regents in accordance with Act 151 of the 1998 Extraordinary Legislative Session and the transfer of the Veteran’s Education Program, including 3 positions, to the Board of Supervisors of the Community and Technical College System. Further, Interagency Transfers were reduced to reflect nonrecurring JTPA Title III revenue, including 2 positions, from the Department of Labor. The Title III funding will no longer flow-thru the Department of Education but will be transferred directly from the Local Service Delivery Areas tot he Technical Colleges.
