Program Authorization: R.S. 17:1991-2046
The mission of the Instructional Program is to provide occupational, technical, and relevant academic training to its student clients. This program seeks the campus goal to provide students an affordable education that results in a well-trained, credentialed workforce that meets the manpower demands of the private and public sectors.
OBJECTIVES AND PERFORMANCE INDICATORS
1. The Instructional Program will provide job skills training, including technical and applied course work, as measured by increasing the percentage of students who acquire marketable skills by at least 1% during FY 98-99.
SOURCE OF FUNDING
This program is funded with general fund, interagency transfers, statutory dedications (Vocational-Technical Enterprise Fund) and federal funds. The interagency transfers are Carl Perkins funds and Louisiana Quality Support Education [8(g)] funds from the Department of Education. Statutory dedications from the Vocational-Technical Enterprise Fund includes tuition. (Per R.S. 39:32B.(8), see table below for a listing of expenditures out of each statutory dedicated fund.) Federal funds are collected from the Veterans Administration to cover the reporting expenses of veterans enrolled in school.
ANALYSIS OF RECOMMENDATION
The total means of financing for this program is recommended at 100.3% of the existing operating budget. It represents 85.0% of the total request ($ 1,178,431) for this program. The changes in funding is primarily due to an increase in Acquisitions and Major Repairs offset by an attrition adjustment.
Carl Perkins funding (including 4 positions) utilized chiefly for equipment enhancements and salaries for instructors and teacher aides for classes heavily populated with disadvantaged students (e.g., remedial education)
