The total means of financing for this program is recommended at 97.7% of the existing operating budget. It represents 64.0% of the total request ($2,298,359) for this program. The changes in funding are primarily due to the annualization of the new unclassified pay plan. Decrease in IAT due to nonrecurring one time IAT money from BESE for instructional equipment purchases.
