The total amount of materials needed for ACR 5000, are:
clay - 1000 lbs @ $0.26/lb = $260
glaze slip - 5 gallons @ $24/gal = $120
plaster - 500 lbs @ $0.49/lb = $245
Total cost $625

$625/5 students = $125 cost per student
To complete the assignments for this course over the duration of the semester, each student is expected to use 200 lbs of clay, 1 gallon of slip, and 100 lbs of plaster. The Ceramics area purchases the dry version of these materials and then mixes them them to keep costs low for students. For example, a standard bag of clay (pre-made from a supplier) would cost a student $0.57/lb, but by purchasing the dry version and mixing it in the studio, the cost is only $0.26/lb to the student plus the students benefit from learning the process of making the clay.
Loraleigh Keashly (ad8889) (Mon, 02 Dec 2019 19:17:09 GMT): Rollback: Hey, Sheryl, Similar issues to Ceramics Multiples I. Unsure how cost per student was determined.
Sheryl Oring (hb0085) (Wed, 04 Dec 2019 23:19:23 GMT): Rollback: please itemize.
Judith A. Moldenhauer (aa4725) (Thu, 05 Dec 2019 17:01:07 GMT): Rollback: Under Statement of Rationale, please indicate how you derived the figures used in the cost/student. If it is based on servicing 60 (please use a specific number rather than a range of 50-60) students in the Ceramics area, indicate how the cost per student applies to students enrolled in this course - that they are part of the 60 total students serviced.
Loraleigh Keashly (ad8889) (Mon, 16 Dec 2019 17:37:21 GMT): Rollback: Judith, the calculations for the 125 are off. the request is for 1200 lbs of plaster, which at .49 per lb would be $588 and not the $245 noted on the request. if they stay with the 1200 lbs plaster, then the total per student cost, would be 171.60. Please have these numbers reviewed and recalculated. The council is fine with $125 CMF but if it is higher, it will have to go back to them. I am also returning ACR 4000 for the same reason.
