Program C: Residential Services

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

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

The mission of the Residential Services Program is to provide a safe, healthy and nurturing residential environment that compliments/supplements the academic/social development of each student at the Louisiana School.

The goals of the Residential Services Program are:

  1. Provide for its students the professional staff, appropriate facilities, and programs necessary for each student to acquire the behavior, attitudes, and values needed to perpetuate a democratic society and to meet the high expectations in this area as set by the student, the school, and the state.
  2. Provide in the residence halls the technology necessary to integrate instruction between the high school classroom/laboratory setting and the residence halls.

The Residential Services Program provides counseling, housing, nursing, social, recreational, and intramural services and programs for all students at the Louisiana School in a nurturing and safe environment. The school operates two dormitories with 14 live-in staff members, a nurse, and an intramurals director.

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).
