RESOURCE ALLOCATION FOR THE PROGRAM
SOURCE OF FUNDING
This program is funded with state general fund, interagency transfers and statutory dedications (Vocational-Technical Enterprise Fund). The interagency transfers are Carl Perkins funds and Louisiana Quality Support Education [8(g)] funds from the Department of Education, Individuals with Disabilities in Education part B, School to Work and Emergency Medical Technician funds from the Department of Health and Hospitals. Statutory dedication funds from the Vocational-Technical Enterprise Fund include tuition, miscellaneous and culinary program sales and private donations. (Per R.S. 39:32B.(8), see table below for a listing of expenditures out of each statutory dedicated fund.)
ANALYSIS OF RECOMMENDATION
The total means of financing for this program is recommended at 101.0% of the existing operating budget. It represents 66.8% of the total request ($ 5,813,954) for this program. The changes in funding are primarily due to statewide adjustments, attrition charges, a reduction in Risk Management premiums and employee termination pay.
Carl Perkins funding (including 9 positions) utilized chiefly for equipment enhancements and salaries for instructors and teacher aides for classes heavily populated with disadvantaged students (e.g., remedial education)
