  2. Today’s Agenda • What is CTE? • What is Perkins? • Perkins requirements • Alaska’s application & reporting procedures • Fiscal considerations • Questions?

  3. What isCareer and Technical Education • Organized education program - coherent sequences of courses • Provides academic , technical, and employability skills and knowledge needed to prepare for future education and careers • Based on industry standards • Provides opportunities for exploration, investigation, and choices leading to a career pathway • Not a separate “track” for those with no postsecondary aspirations • Focus on secondary - postsecondary transitions and partnerships • Leads to industry certification, credential, associate degree, baccalaureate degree

  4. Vocational Education vs. Career and Technical Education

  5. What is Perkins? • Federal formula program meant to improve and enhance existing CTE programs • Perkins act originally authorized in 1984, latest is Perkins IV in 2006 • District allocations based on census and poverty data • Perkins is federal money – state (EED) and local grantees (districts) must follow the rules! PERKINS IS NOT CTE !!

  6. Alaska’s PerkinsFunding- “Same is less” Actual Dollars Adjusted for inflation

  7. State Perkins $$: 85% to Grants • Public secondary & postsecondary • 10% reserve for • 1. small district subsidy to $15,000 minimum • 2. secondary/postsecondary partnerships • 75% • 85% secondary districts via formula (based on census and poverty data) • 15% postsecondary via competitive RFP

  9. District Requirements for Perkins $$$ • CTE advisory group – active, with specified groups represented • 5-year plan – approved by EED • Sequences of CTE courses within “career clusters” • At least 1 sequence where students can earn 2 credits- those students become “CTE Concentrators” • Program of Study (at least one) • Special populations support • CTE Professional development • Accountability - 4 “core indicators” with 9 measures • Third-party technical assessments – valid and reliable • Annual report and application

  10. Local Plan – ‘08/’09 thru ‘12/’13 • Focus areas • Needs assessment • Program design/implementation • Professional capacity building • Advisory strategy • Special populations strategies • Career guidance • Accountability and evaluation • Facility and funding

  11. Annual Report/ApplicationWhat happened last year, what’s planned for the coming year • CTE Advisory Strategy review • Program of Study, technical skill assessments, articulated programs • Instruction & professional development • Special populations • Career guidance • Reporting – DARTs • District Plan for Improvement, if Federal benchmarks are not met

  12. Perkins Fiscal Considerations for district budget requests • CTE program development & upgrades • Curriculum • Associated professional development • CTEPS facilitation • “Supplies” are suspect • Perkins funding must be used to add to a CTE program, not replace lost district funding

  13. Perkins Fiscal Constraints • Ineligible Perkins expenses • CTE instructor salaries during regular school day • Consumables vs. Disposables • Fun promotional materials • Equipment not used solely for CTE classes (i.e., computers – must be proportional to CTE use) • 5% Admin Cap • No carryover • CTSO funding policies • Out-of-state travel requests

  14. Sample Program of StudyHigh School, combined with:

  15. Sample Program of StudyPostsecondary

  16. If construction students follow this CTE Program of study, they gain: • 21 college credits towards their AAS degree upon high school graduation • 12 hours of tech prep credits at $25/credit hour ($300) , instead of university tuition ($1764) which saves the student $1464 • By completing 21 hours in the program during high school, students can complete the AAS degree in 3 semesters or less instead of the 4-5 semesters normally required.

  17. What is needed for annual funding renewal? • All-in-One submitted accurately and timely • Report and application – report on all activities and proposed activities • Proposed budget with allowable expenses • Course changes aligned with 5-year plan • CTE data reported to public • Revised 5-year plan if necessary • Revised DPI if necessary
