ABSTRACT
Changes in the economic climate in the state of South Carolina have had a profound influence on all education programs including SCPEAP. The SCPEAP program when it is fully functioning requires about $350,000 a year to do state assessment at all school levels. Efforts to seek full funding to operate the program began at a time when the state was moving into a three year budget crisis. The year 2003 is the third year of severe state budget deficits that have resulted in a lack of funding for any new programs and major budget cuts in all state agencies and services. In this climate efforts to seek funds to fully implement the assessment program at all school levels were not successful and could not be expected to be successful. SDE has budgeted money out of other funds to continue the high school assessment program but has put on hold the elementary and middle school programs.
