Program A: Administration

Program Authorization: R.S. 17:1941-1958; P.L. 101-476; P.L. 98-199 as amended; Rehabilitation Act of 1973

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

The mission of the Administration Program is to provide administrative management, support and direction for the instructional program to ensure that exceptional children in state-operated facilities are afforded educational opportunity.

The goal of the Administration Program is to provide the administrative control and support necessary to assure delivery of appropriate special education and related services to eligible students eligible for these services through SSD#1 and ensure that these services are provided to the maximum extent possible.

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).

The Administration Program provides leadership and support services to Special School District No. 1. The success of this program is reflected in the success of the other programs in Special School District No. 1. Performance information consistent with this program's strategic plan and with the statewide model for administration/support service programs will be reported next year. The program did provide the following information for FY 1998-99.

The total means of financing for this program is recommended at 111.1% of the existing operating budget. It represents 93.6% of the total request ($1,036,283) for this program. The changes in this program are primarily due to an increase in risk management premiums and full funding of all recommended positions. The remaining amount is due to statewide adjustments.
