Program E: Textbooks

Program Authorization: La. Constitution Article VIII, Sec. 13(A); and R.S. 17:351

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

The mission of the Textbooks Program is to provide financial assistance for nondiscriminatory, state-approved nonpublic schools to provide school children with textbooks, library books, and other materials of instruction.

The goal of the Textbooks Program is to equitably distribute the appropriated level of state support to each local school district for purchases of nonsectarian books for nonpublic school students.

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).
