The purpose of the Carl D. Perkins grant is to develop more fully, the academic, career, and technical skills of secondary education students who enroll in CTE programs. Our district goals, to meet the provisions of the grant, include:

  • integrating academics with CTE programs using a coherent sequence of courses
  • linking CTE at the secondary and postsecondary levels
  • providing students with strong experience in and understanding of all aspects of an industry
  • developing, improving, or expanding the use of technology in CTE programs
  • initiating, improving, expanding, and modernizing quality CTE programs, including relevant technology
  • providing services and activities that are of sufficient size, scope, and quality to be effective
  • providing activities to prepare special populations for high-skill, high-wage, or high-demand occupations that will lead to self-sufficiency
