This program is funded with general fund, interagency transfers, statutory dedications (Vocational-Technical Enterprise Fund) and federal funds. The interagency transfer is 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.)

ANALYSIS OF RECOMMENDATION
The total means of financing for this program is recommended at 104.6% of the existing operating budget. It represents 58.5% of the total request ($1,434,856) for this program. The changes in funding are primarily due to an increase in Salaries and Related Benefits for Termination pay and Insurance premiums.
Carl Perkins funding (including 1 position) utilized chiefly for equipment enhancements and salaries for instructors and teacher aides for classes heavily populated with disadvantaged students (e.g., remedial education)
