Each program has specific learning outcomes related to industry standards. Resources Allocated: Director and Coordinator’s time for speaking opportunities, off-campus employer benefit fairs and conferences, and professional development. Increased Early Admission applications and enrollments, adding 12 schools in Calcasieu Parish plus study, approval, implementation and promotion of Dual Credit greatly impacted time spent by Director and Administrative Coordinator on Early Admission initiatives and monies spent on travel, printing and postage. Additional sections of Early Admission classes impacted institutional instructional budget. Variety of new Leisure Learning classes requires more time spent by Coordinator and her assistant in developing classes, finding rooms, contracting, launching, and promoting classes. Kid’s College classes require full staff support and extra student help/non-prorated workers for escorting 2nd-8th grade participants from dropoff points to class and back plus moving from building to building between classes. Unavailability of cooking lab forced rental of off-campus facility for Leisure Learning cooking classes. Utilized student workers and graduate students to tally class evaluations.
