    effective July 1, 2004

  • $10,000,000 to finance purchase and refresh of technology related network equipment and operations

  • $9,000,000 to address long-term shortfalls in funding for library acquisitions

  • $6,814,000 to continue reductions in the backlog of deferred maintenance

  • $12,596,000 to expand outreach to students for improving access to early assessment and academic preparation programs
