The Carl D. Perkins Career Technical Education Act of 2006, as amended by the Strengthening Career and Technical Education for the 21st Century Act (Perkins V) is a federal act designed to develop more fully the academic and career technical skills of secondary education students and post-secondary education students who elect to enroll in career technical education programs. Perkins V provides federal funding for secondary and postsecondary career and technical education in Wyoming.
The above presentation included a video on the first slide. This video is available here.
The WDE is taking public comment on proposed performance assessment targets for Perkins V. In order to receive federal funds through Perkins V, Wyoming must submit a plan for Wyoming Career and Technical Education (CTE) for the next four years, which includes these statewide performance assessment targets. A list of federally-required indicators and proposed targets can be found in Memo 2019-103.
Public comment on the proposed targets will be taken until November 8, 2019. Comments can be submitted online or mailed to:
