Career and Technical Education in Kentucky is responsible for meeting the performance measures outlined in the federal Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Act in order to receive federal funding.
Kentucky State Transition Plan (Perkins V)
Kentucky developed a one year transition plan to move from Perkins IV to the Strengthening Career and Technical Education the for 21st Century Act (Perkins V). The Kentucky Transition Plan will be in effect until July 1, 2020.
Perkins V Performance Measures
Kentucky has set specific annual goals based on the Perkins performance indicators, to ensure that eligible recipients are monitoring growth. These goals are part of the recipient’s application, which asks them to detail actions that have been taken that enabled the district to meet the goal or to develop an improvement plan to assist with meeting the goal.
Approvable and Non-Approvable Expenditures
Perkins legislation outlines six required use of funds and suggested activities. Documentation is needed at the local level that justifies the six required use of funds. The eligible recipients must meet all six requirements when spending Perkins funds.
Guidelines for Perkins V Advisory Councils
To maintain Career & Technical Education (CTE) programs that meet current occupational needs, CTE educators rely heavily on advice from business and industry.
An Advisory Committee is a group of persons made up of employers, parents, students, teachers, and school administrators. These groups should advice schools on items such as curriculum, equipment, and student work-based learning.
