Program Authorization: R.S. 17:1961-1968
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 goal of the Residential Services Program is to 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.
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.
OBJECTIVES AND PERFORMANCE INDICATORS
1. By August 15 of each year, the Residential Program shall house a student population of sufficient size to occupy 95% of available student housing.
2. In FY 1998-99, the Residential Services Program will provide on a continuing basis, personal and academic counseling services in keeping with their job descriptions by maintaining a student to dormitory staff ratio not to exceed 30:1.
RESOURCE ALLOCATION FOR THE PROGRAM
SOURCE OF FUNDING
This program is funded with the general fund and fees and self-generated revenues. The fees and self-generated revenues are derived from room and board fees.
ANALYSIS OF RECOMMENDATION
The total means of financing for this program is recommended at 96% of the existing operating budget. It represents 91.5% of the total request ($1,288,285) for this program. The changes in this program are primarily due to an increase in funding for acquisitions and major repairs, an increase in funding for positions added by the Legislature and an increase in funding in order to provide pay raises for the residential staff. The remaining difference is due to statewide adjustments.
