California Career Technical Education Plan
about the project
It has been seven years since the State of California submitted a Perkins State Plan. Since then, the need for a comprehensive statewide career technical education (CTE) system has continued to grow in response to the state's changing workforce needs, the globalization of the world's economy, and the need to engage students in rigorous and relevant educational experiences.
California is required by the federal government to submit a state plan in order to gain eligibility for federal funding under the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Act of 2006. This plan is intended to provide a vision for CTE that is larger than the programs supported by Carl D. Perkins funds.
The CTE State Plan website features key dates and information, as well as a downloadable draft of the new CTE State Plan.
