Perkins Implementation 2023-2025

Overview

With the 2023-2025 application cycle come some extensive changes. The CTE/Perkins grants have become part of the secondary Integrated Application Process. This is good news, as CTE is at the table as districts engage communities and determine priorities for achieiving student success. Implementation for this two-year cycle will involve many changes in our work and our timelines. The resources below are offered to assist with these changes.

2023-25 Planning Allocations

These allocations are to be used for planning purposes for the two-year grant planning and application process.

Community Engagement and Comprehensive Local Needs Assessment

All Perkins recipients—whether a direct recipient or a member of a consortium—must engage community partners in a comprehensive local needs assessment process which addresses the six required elements in the Perkins Law Sec 134(c)(2). While each recipient may choose a process that works best for their school district or college, all are required to address the elements and include the named community partners. The following tools are offered:

Secondary Recipients

The community engagement and needs assessment process should be completed by January 2023. 


Postsecondary Recipients

The community engagement and needs assessment process should be completed by March 2023.

Consortia Members

All recipients must utilize the required community engagement in the needs assessment process, and consortia members must provide the results to the CTE Regional Coordinator for use in the development of the consortia plan and application for Perkins funds. Including the CTE Regional Coordinator in the engagement processes is important in developing a holistic regional strategy.

Secondary and Postsecondary representatives should be planning and collaborating across institutional boundaries to ensure the best outcome for their regions.

Perkins Plan, Application and Budget Template

The plan, application and budget template moving into the 2023-2025 school years will look quite different from prior years, and will involve different processes and timelines, depending on the type of Perkins grant recipient.

Perkins Secondary Recipients (All)

The Perkins required questions are fully embedded in the integrated application and budget template. Please refer to the Integrated Guidance web page for more information. The Integrated Application is due in March 2023, and requires board approval.

Perkins Secondary Consortia Member Districts

The district's integrated application will include CTE priorities and activities—but the budget template will not reflect any CTE investments. The CTE Regional Coordinator will convene consortia leadership to review the results of the district and college needs assessment and identified priorities in order to arrive at regional plan priorities.

Perkins Postsecondary Consortia Members

The college will share the results of the community engagement and needs assessment with the CTE Regional Coordinator. The CTE Regional Coordinator will convene consortia leadership to review the results of the district and college needs assessment and identified priorities in order to arrive at regional plan priorities.

Postsecondary Direct Recipients

The 2023-2025 Perkins Plan, Application and Budget are due June 30, 2023.

Consortia

The 2023-2025 Perkins Plan, Application and Budget are due June 30, 2023.
