Program B: Instructional Services

Program Authorization: R.S. 17:1961-1968

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

The mission of the Instructional Services Program is to provide a challenging educational experience designed to enhance the development of the academic/social potential of each Louisiana School student toward work and service in a global society.

The goals of the Instructional Services Program are:

  1. Provide for its students well-qualified facilitators, appropriate textbooks and materials of instruction, technology, and facilities necessary for each student to successfully complete the prescribed course of study through the examination and exchange of ideas in a community of learners.
  2. Increase student participation in meaningful research in a myriad of subjects throughout the curriculum and thereby generate opportunities for such students to receive internships, scholarships, and awards.

The Instructional Services Program provides a rigorous and challenging educational experience for academically-and artistically-motivated high school juniors and seniors through a unique accelerated curriculum which includes instruction, investigation, and research. Faculty members are required to possess a minimum of a master’s degree in the academic discipline they teach, and more than half of the faculty possess terminal degrees in their subject field. Faculty are selected from throughout the nation.

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).
