|Statement of Purpose|
This supplemental appropriation for the Superintendent of Public Instruction deals with three issues. The first provides authorization for two additional positions (Section 2) and allows the Superintendent to transfer the necessary funds from operating expenditures to personnel costs to pay for the positions (Section 3). These two positions formerly worked in the Idaho’s MOST program, which was paid for by an Albertson Foundation grant, under the auspices of the State Board of Education. The positions, which will be paid from funds generated by teacher certification fees, will continue to perform similar duties to that which they performed under the board.
The second issue deals with providing $200,000 under Miscellaneous Revenue to enable the agency to complete the final phase of the High Performance Schools project. The purpose of the project is to study high performing schools throughout Idaho to try and determine what kinds of programs and practices tend to lead to success. In light of the achievement goals that the Legislature and State Board have established for K-12 education in Idaho, the project has put particular focus on which schools have been especially successful in implementing Achievement Standards in their schools. The project is funded by a grant from the Albertson Foundation.
The third issue provides the agency with an increase in its federal funds spending authority. These funds are available, and the approval of this increase will enable the agency to meet the costs that are attributable to the federal area through the end of the current fiscal year.
This legislation appropriates an additional $1 million in federal funds and $200,000 in dedicated funds for FY 2004. There is no General Fund impact.
