The total means of financing for this program is recommended at 49.2% of the existing operating budget. It represents 51.8% of the total request ($98,980,462) for this program. The decrease in general fund is primarily attributable to nonrecurring the one-time pay supplement for Non-MFP Support Personnel and adding $5.36 million for High Stakes Testing Summer School. The total means of financing decreased as a result of nonrecurring $43.9 million in statutory dedications for Classroom-based Technology, Teacher Supplies and Alternative Schools in addition to carry forwards from the prior fiscal year. The Charter Schools Start-up Loan Fund was transferred to the Board of Elementary and Secondary Education and the Very Special Arts; Bridge Program and America Reads Challenge Grant flow-thru were transferred from the State Activities budget unit.
