Program A: Administration and Education

Program Authorization: R.S. 25:650, et. seq.

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

The mission of CODOFIL and the Administration and Education Program is two-fold: to offer Louisiana’s citizens, whether they be of French ancestry or not, the opportunity either to learn French or to enhance and utilize French they already know; and to explore, preserve and enhance Cajun, Creole and Francophone heritage in Louisiana for the cultural, economic and touristic benefit of all its citizens.

The goals of the Administration/Education Program are:

1. Provide elementary, secondary and college-level students, teachers and administrators with opportunities to engage in and profit from French language learning experiences.

2. Provide Louisiana citizens with information, counsel and assistance regarding the state's Cajun and Creole linguistic and cultural heritage.

3. Integrate Louisiana into the international organizations comprising the Francophone community.

The Administration/ Education Program includes the following activities: Administration/Education, LA Gazette Production, Scholarship Administration, and Information Dissemination.

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).
