Program A: Administration

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

The mission of the Administration Program is to provide leadership and enact policies that result in improved academic achievement and responsible citizenship for all students.

The goals of the Administration Program are:

1. To provide leadership in setting an education agenda for the continuous improvement of public education as measured by student and school achievement.

2. To strive to improve financing of public education as measured by the effective and efficient use of human and financial resources.

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).

DIFFERENCE (TOTAL RECOMMENDED AND EXISTING OPERATING BUDGET)

The total means of financing for this program is recommended at 44.5% of the existing operating budget. It represents 246.2% of the total request ($847,430) for this program. The decrease from the existing budget is primarily attributable to nonrecurring the Technical College Equipment Allocation which was budgeted in the Board of Elementary and Secondary Education in accordance with Act 19. Other adjustments include the transfer of the Charter Schools Start-up Loan Fund from the Department of Education to centralize administration of the Charter School Program; the addition of $87,800 for Board member per diem reimbursement of up to eight (8) meetings per month and associated travel; and, the substitution of general fund for Carl D. Perkins federal funding which will now be budgeted within the new Community and Technical Colleges Board.
