Perkins Performance Measures
Kentucky has identified four major performance measures: (1) academic and technical skill achievement; (2) attainment of secondary school diploma; (3) placement in, retention in, and completion of postsecondary education, military service, or employment; and (4) participation in nontraditional CTE programs that lead to nontraditional training and employment.
Perkins 2012-2013 Local Application
Each school district eligible to receive funding from the 2006 Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Improvement Act must submit an application to the Division of Career and Technical Education. The application tells us what you plan to do to improve career and technical education in your school during the next year, how you arrived at this decision, estimated costs, and how you plan to go about implementing and evaluating the improvements. The overall plan should be developed for a one-year period.
Uses of Perkins Funds
Perkins legislation outlines that the use of funds must fall into two categories: Required and Permissive. The nine required uses of funds and the permissive uses with samples of expenditures may be found here. Documentation is needed at the local level (Central Office) which justifies the nine required uses of the funds. The district must meet the required uses of funds, not each school. Some examples of how to document the eight required uses may also be found here. Please find additional resources on the right.
