					                              Budget Narrative: 2003-2004

The basis of cost for both requested and contributed costs for this Upward Bound
Math/Science Project (the NJCU Science, Math and Technology Center Project) is
delineated below. The salary and fringe benefits figures presented here are in keeping
with NJCU’s salary scale for comparable positions, and with labor costs in the high cost
NY-NJ metropolitan area. The relatively high cost of the program is driven by these
uncontrollable factors, as well as by our determination to provide a high quality program
of services for students who are high risk for academic failure.

1. Personnel

NJCU requests funding for two full-time professional staff: SMT Project Director
(Johnson, 1.0 FTE), $48,000 annual salary requested from USDE; project management
duties as well as responsibility for academic program, liaison with schools, reporting to
USDE.

SMT Counselor Specialist (Aitken, 1.0 FTE), $42,000 annual salary requested from
USDE, responsible for advisement, counseling, scheduling of activities, record-keeping
on individual students.

Math/Science Coordinator (Yamaguchi, .50 FTE), released from teaching duties for six
(6) credits each semester during the academic year and an additional 8 credits of overload
during each summer. Total of 20 credits annually at $800/credit or $16,000.

NJCU Faculty Math, Science and Technology Content Specialists (Dr. ConnieYu,
Computer Science; Dr. Bill Montgomery, Geosciences; Dr. Julio Guillen, Mathematics;
Dr. Chris Shamburg, Education Technology; ) at 3 credits release time during the
academic year to conduct workshops and consult on curriculum issues with secondary
teachers. (These content specialists will form a team with revolving members as the
curricular emphases within the Project shifts; i.e., during Year 2 of the Project, faculty
from Biology and Physics will also be involved, and two of the original team members
will cycle out of the team; in Year 3, based on evaluation findings and needs expressed
by schools, other faculty from the sciences, math and technology areas will be added.)
Total of 24 credits each year @ $800 = $9,600

Summer Program Staff:
        Peer Counselor (NJCU student) and Tutors (four NJCU students); 5 x 26 days (2
days of orientation and 24 days during summer program) x 8 hours x $10/hour = $10,400
        NJCU and secondary faculty (six total each summer): 24 days of instruction in
five academic enrichment areas, equivalent of 3 credits each faculty member; 5 x 3
credits x $800 = $12,000

Secondary Faculty Training Stipends for attendance at workshops and seminars, based on
hourly attendance rates determined by the cognizant bargaining unit: $4,500 per year.
Academic Year Tutors (NJCU students): $6,000

Student Assistant (50%) to provide Project staff with clerical and logistical support; 20
hours per week at $10/hour x 50 weeks = $10,000.


2. Fringe Benefits

Full-time academic year staff (director, counselor specialist) at 26% of salary. $90,000 x
26% = $23,400

Part-time faculty, overload and release time benefits calculated at 10.65%. $37,600 x
$10.65% = $4,004
