    Instructional Equipment Funds.

    Lottery: Instructional items that are consumable and used by students. Generally, these items have a life expectancy of less than one year.

    Instructional Equipment: are items that are more than $200 per item, with a life expectancy of at least one year. These items must be used by students.

    Review Strong Workforce Funding Basics

    Margaret Bdzil (Workforce, Program Coordinator) explained Perkins and Strong Workforce funds both of which are for use exclusively by CTE programs.

    Perkins are Federal monies. Thus, this fund not appropriate for paying International Students.

    Three years is maximum number of repeats. For example, tutors funded by Perkins have a three-year limit to be funded from Perkins. Students paid from Perkins funds must maintain full-time status with 12 units. Eligibility parallels financial aid.

    Local De Anza College Strong Workforce budget is $1.3 million - $500K = $800K. Regional budget is $700K.
