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 academic course work, as measured by increasing the percentage of students who acquire marketable skills by at least 10% during FY 1998-99.
SOURCE OF FUNDING
This program is funded with state general fund, interagency transfers, statutory dedications (Vocational-Technical Enterprise Fund) and federal funds. The interagency transfers are Carl Perkins funds, Louisiana Quality Support Education [8(g)] funds and Job Training Partnership Act Title III funds from the Department of Education. Statutory dedication funds from the Vocational-Technical Enterprise Fund include tuition and miscellaneous and culinary program sales. (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 the school.
ANALYSIS OF RECOMMENDATION
The total means of financing for this program is recommended at 139.1% of the existing operating budget. It represents 61.4% of the total request ($ 2,706,561) for this program. The changes are primarily due to an attrition adjustment offset by the annualization of partly funded positions and supplies associated with the Welding Pool Program and an increase in Interagency Transfers from Jobs Training Partnership Act Title III and Adult Basic Education grants.
