Next Data Available: March 2006
Data Validated By: No Formal Verification.
Explanation: We did not meet our target for 2004. The program has had an across the board decrease in funding of .58 percent since the original baseline target was established in FY 2003. In addition, the costs of books have substantially increased. Thus, the grantee could only start a small number of new programs. As a result, this decreases the possibility that the grantee can continue to raise the percentage of students served since there will be too few new programs to substantially impact the book distribution. Target adjustments will be made to future years to account for these factors.
