Fiscal Year 1980 State Funding Claims Processed and Paid by the Illinois Community College Board.
Illinois Community Coll. Board, Springfield.
This graphical and textual summary of the state funding claims paid by the Illinois Community College Board during fiscal year (FY) 1980 provides information about three grant categories: credit hour grants; equalization grants; and disadvantaged student grants. The report first details total payments, which amounted to $103,252,400 for credit hour grants, $17,200,000 for equalization grants, and $4,700,000 for disadvantaged student grants. None of these funds were lapsed. The number of full-time equivalent (FTE) students served under each of the three categories is then detailed, as are the grant payments made to each of the state's 38 community college districts. An analysis is then presented of the credit hour and FTE student counts upon which state credit hour grants were determined. This analysis includes: (1) a list of rates per credit hour utilized for payment of grants; (2) a delineation of credit hours generated in five instructional areas at each of the college districts; (3) an assessment of the average grant per credit hour at each district; and (4) a breakdown of credit hours and grants paid at each district during each of the four academic terms. The report concludes with a summary of the equalization grants paid to 17 of the districts and a delineation of the FY 1980 disadvantaged student grant payments per district, which were based on the number of remedial credit hours generated during FY 1979.
