  2. “Fore!” is a warning shout in golf when a wildly struck ball threatens person(s) ahead.

  3. The term stems from the Middle English (1200’s) meaning of “fore” as “ahead” or “front” such as foreshadow, foresee, forewarn …

  4. JD must have known that Perkins would not be complete he wanted this conference to forewarn us of what to expect…

  5. Current focus of Congress is on “COMPETITIVENESS” • What steps necessary to keep America competitive • Tom Friedman – “The World is Flat”

  6. “COMPETITIVENESS” • Competitiveness has always been a mainstay of VEA/Perkins • Mean performance for CTE students on literacy is higher than all other high school students getting a diploma • NCES – Let’s use CTE Model • Scott Fleming

  7. Current criticism of CTE often based on Perkins II data – but Perkins II sole focus was “special populations” • 100% of funds for programs with highest concentration of special populations

  8. PART:Based on old data

  9. The schizophrenia of Perkins is undermining support.Perkins II vs. Perkins III Thank Paul Weckstein Center for Law and Education

  15. But OVAE is pushing the envelope on CTE reform: • Use rural reserve to target priorities, address accountability shortfalls • Emphasizing “size, scope, quality” of projects • Accentuate “State Administered” nature of program • Priorities • Caps / Minimums • Industries in demand • Local funds should address accountability

  16. OVAE’s monitoring process is evolving • OIG / OCFO input • More focus on fiscal • Potential audit exposure • SEA monitoring of locals • Follow-up on corrective action plans • Risk based monitoring
