The college allocated millage renewal funds as follows:
     Instructional and Program Development ................................................................................................................................ 4%

     Classroom Technology and Capital Equipment ..................................................................................................................... 21%

     as well as supportive and operational technology

     Student Scholarships and Employment .................................................................................................................................... 4%

     that will improve their marketability

     Improving College Operating Systems for Students ............................................................................................................. 35%
     Based on historical information and future projections, OCC determined that 35 percent of millage renewal funds were needed
     to support college operations and fund the reserves needed for the college to continue providing consistent services of the
     highest quality at its multiple sites.

     Improving Facilities for Students .......................................................................................................................................... 36%
     Acting upon the results of a 1995 Facilities Inventory and Deferred Maintenance Backlog Study conducted by the architectural
     firm DSA Architects (now known as the SHW Group), to determine the condition of all of OCC’s buildings (totalling 46 at the
     time), and then implementing a maintenance schedule to maximize the useful life of those buildings. The study indicated that
     15 buildings were in “poor” condition and needed urgent attention; 12 were in “fair” condition and required some attention
     to bring them up to industry standards.
