Unlike new equipment, upgrades usually do not come out of your own budget. Most upgrades are financed through other budgets including: district repair budgets; technology funds since we are changing the computer in the machine; or through special needs funds, since once these machines are upgraded, they will be much easier for a special needs student to be successful. Upgrades often make it possible for the vocational-technical supervisor to tap into funds that otherwise would not be available. Equipment purchased under Perkins can often be repaired under Perkins. Also, it is often much easier to get school boards to approve repairs on existing equipment than purchasing new equipment. Depending on the machine, most upgrades range from 1⁄2 to 1/20th of the replacement cost of a machine and will usually allow it to operate better than new.
