On page 4-42 there is reference to a reduction for the Perkins Vocational and Technical Education grant. Please explain the nature of the reduction and describe the likely impact

Question#: 20

BUDGET PAGE REFERENCE: 4-42

ANSWER:

The Perkins Career and Technology (formerly Vocational and Technical) Education grant funding was reduced by the U.S. Congress. The decrease of $128,679 for FY 2013 will result in a delay of some curriculum development, postpone equipment purchases, reduce the number of teachers that will be able to participate in professional development, and eliminate funding for part-time salaries, associated employee benefits, and office supplies. Instructional programs in schools will continue as planned and services to students will not be impacted.
