Childcare, Transportation, and Book Loans

Child Care

Dependant Care is limited to three dependents per family. It is paid directly to the designated licensed daycare facility or registered family home at a weekly rate based on the age of the child(ren). Children 12 and up are not eligible.  Childcare funding from others sources such as CCS must be reported. Childcare funding cannot be awarded from another source and Perkins at the same time. Excessive absences of the child from daycare will result in cancellation of funds. Payment is made at the beginning of each month. Registration or supply fees are not included. The rates are as follows and are subject to change.

  • Infants to age 1    $65.00
  • Ages 1 to 2           $60.00
  • Ages 2 and up      $50.00
  • After school care   $40.00

Book Loans

Book loans are available to Perkins participants who qualify. Books must be returned to the Perkins/Adult Student Services office by the due date at the end of each semester. Failure to do so will result in a "hold" being placed on records. This will prevent future enrollment, transfer, and/or release of transcripts. Students who are currently enrolled in a Health Science Program have the option of keeping their books at the end of the semester.   Also, books can only be vouchered from the on-campus bookstore.  Perkins students may write/highlight in the books.  If the books are lost or destroyed, the student will be responsible for the replacement cost of the items.  All previously used textbooks that are replaced with updated versions will be available to CTE students for free in our office.  

Transportation Reimbursement

Transportation reimbursement is available to those Perkins participants who live 20 or more miles from campus. Mileage is reimbursed at $0.10 per mile.  Mileage log sheets must be picked up at the beginning of the month, filled in, and returned to Perkins/Adult Student Services by the last business day of the month. Failure to turn in log sheet by the last business day of the month will forfeit payment of for that month. Checks will be mailed by the 15th of each month for the previous month from Business Services. Please record exact trip mileage.  Rate is subject to change.
