Program L: Vocational Education Assistance

Program Authorization: P.L. 101-394; 34CFR 90

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

Note: Activities regarding Carl D. Perkins funds have moved to Schedule 19-649, Louisiana Community and Technical College Board as a result of Acts 151 and 170 of 1998. Objectives and indicators can be found there.

This program provides financial assistance to state and local agencies including the High Schools that Work program and the Job Skills program in Natchitoches Parish.

The mission of the Vocational Education Assistance Program is to ensure that all recipients of funds receive the appropriate and/or mandated services and funding which will enable them to provide vocational education programs to citizens of this state.

The goal of the Vocational Education Assistance Program is to distribute funds according to the guidelines established for the various activities delineated in the law.

OBJECTIVES AND PERFORMANCE INDICATORS

Unless otherwise indicated, all objectives are to be accomplished during or by the end of FY 1999-2000. Performance indicators are made up of two parts: name and value. The indicator name describes what is being measured. The indicator value is the numeric value or level achieved within a given measurement period. For budgeting purposes, performance indicator values are shown for the prior fiscal year, the current fiscal year, and alternative funding scenarios (continuation budget level and Executive Budget recommendation level) for the ensuing fiscal year (the fiscal year of the budget document).

 

 

RESOURCE ALLOCATION FOR THE PROGRAM

SOURCE OF FUNDING

This program is funded with General Fund, Interagency Transfers, Self-generated and Federal Funds. The source of the Interagency Transfer is 8(g) for the High Schools That Work Program; and Job Training Partnership funds from the state Department of Labor. The JTPA funds include eight percent funding (8% of all JTPA IIA-adult and Title IIC-youth) that is set aside to remediate individuals in need of occupational training who do not meet the basic skills required to enter occupational training; and Title III for dislocated workers. The source of the Self-generated Revenue is bond money collected from bonding companies of closed proprietary schools that is used for the reimbursement of student's tuition. The Federal Funds are received from the Carl D. Perkins Vocational and Applied Technology Act, as amended in 1990.

DIFFERENCE (TOTAL RECOMMENDED AND EXISTING OPERATING BUDGET)

The total means of financing for this program is recommended at 10.2% of the existing operating budget. It represents 10.2% of the total request ($26,119,337) for this program. The decrease is the result of a change in policy by the Department of Labor, whereby Title III Dislocated Worker Funds will be transferred from the Local Service Delivery Areas rather than the Department of Education; the transfer of the Proprietary School Student Protection Fund to the Board of Regents; and the transfer of the Carl D. Perkins flow thru to the new Community and Technical College Board.
