Regional meetings are being hosted by the Ohio Department of Education and the Ohio Department of Higher Education to provide an opportunity for input in the state planning process for Perkins V. The meeting will include:
- A general overview of the Perkins V Transition Plan;
- The Perkins V 4-year State Plan development process; and
- Opportunities for stakeholder feedback on topics related to the state transition and 4-year plans.
All regional meetings will be held from 9:00 AM – 3:00 PM. Meals are not provided, but there will be a break for lunch. Please plan accordingly.
On July 31, 2018, the Strengthening Career and Technical Education for the 21st Century Act, or Perkins V, was signed into law. This legislation:
- Requires extensive collaboration among State- and local-level secondary, postsecondary, and business and industry partners to develop and implement high-quality CTE programs and programs of study;
- Introduces a needs assessment to align CTE programs to locally identified in-demand, high-growth, and high-wage career fields;
- Strengthens the CTE teacher and faculty pipeline, especially in hard-to-fill program areas, including STEM;
- Promotes innovative practices to reshape where, how, and to whom CTE is delivered;
- Expands the reach and scope of career guidance and academic counseling; and
- Shifts responsibility to States to determine their performance measures, including new program quality measures, and related levels of performance to optimize outcomes for students.
This meeting is recommended for Superintendents, Career-Technical Education Directors, Treasurers and Postsecondary and Adult Perkins recipients. Subsequent meetings with broader stakeholders will be scheduled in the future.
