  9. STEPS AFTER LAW IS APPROVED • Options: • One-year transition plan + • Five-year plan OR • Six-year plan • Virginia: Transitional State Plan was developed and approved for 2007-2008

  10. PERKINSState Plan and Budget Application • STEP TWO: Five Year State Plan 2009-2012 was developed and approved • Input was received from all stakeholders • State Board does first review • Public hearings are held • Final review by the State Board of Education and plan is approved • Plan is reviewed/approved by the Secretary of Education and Governor

  11. PERKINSState Plan and Budget Application • STEP THREE: Submitted to U.S. Education Department for approval • STEP FOUR: Virginia DOE, Office of Career and Technical Education must submit any updates to state plan and budget each year to USED

  12. PERKINSLocal Plan & Budget Application • Divisions developed a five-year plan under new Perkins law • Update with a one-year plan in subsequent years • Each annual plan may be amended throughout the year • Planning and approval must include all stakeholders

  13. PERKINSLocal Plan & Budget Application • Signature Page of Plan • Hard copy sent to CTE Office via FAX or scan and e-mail; retain original at school division • Must include the following signatures: CTE local advisory chairperson, community college vice president of academic services or tech prep director, local CTE administrator, superintendent • CTE Local Advisory Chairperson’s signature indicates that you have included representatives of all stakeholders

  14. PERKINSPerformance Standards - Accountability • PERFORMANCE STANDARDS • 1S1 Academic Skills Attainment: Reading/Language Arts – English 11 and • 1S2 Academic Skills Attainment: Mathematics • Use the highest proficiency.  Then, if there are multiple tests with the same proficiency, we take the highest scaled score.  We use the same logic for Math and English.  • Completers gathered from End-of-Year (EOY) Student Record Collection Report and Student Testing ID Numbers compared against SOL testing information

  15. PERKINSPerformance Standards - Accountability • 2S1 Technical Skills Attainment • Combination of Competency Student Attainment Rate (Student attained 80% of essential competencies for CTE program completed) and Industry Credential Pass Rate • Information gathered from End-of-Year (EOY) Student Record Collection Report and the CTECC Industry Credentialing Report

  16. PERKINSPerformance Standards – Accountability2S1 STEP ONE STEP TWO Student Competency Attainment from EOY Student Record Collection (CTE Completers) • CTE Completers Taking and Passing Industry Credentials • Possible scores • Did not meet 33% -- use actual percentage of students passing • Met 33% or higher – use 50% or actual pass percentage, which ever is higher 16

  17. PERKINSPerformance Standards – Accountability2S1 STEP THREE EXAMPLE 1 • Actual Student Competency Attainment Percentage + Industry Credential Percentage and divide by 2 Division Does Not Meet Industry Credential 33% Pass Rate: Student Competency Rate - 98% Industry Credential Rate - 24% 98%+24%/2=61% 17

  18. PERKINSPerformance Standards – Accountability2S1 EXAMPLE 2 EXAMPLE 3 Division Meets 33% Industry Credential Student Competency Rate - 98% Industry Credential Rate - 50% 98%+50%/2=74% Division Exceeds Industry Credential Pass Rate Student Competency Rate - 98% Industry Credential Rate - 88% 98%+88%/2=93% 18

  19. PERKINSPerformance Standards - Accountability • 3S1 Secondary School Completion • This is determined from the End-of-Year (EOY) Report through Student Record Collection • Number of CTE students who finish a CTE program and graduate, earn a GED or other state recognized equivalent.

  20.

  22. PERKINSPerformance Standards - Accountability • 6S1 Non-Traditional Participation • Collected through the Secondary Enrollment Demographics Form (SEDF) • Courses and the gender which is considered non-traditional is located in your Career and Technical Education Reporting System (CTERS) Manual • 6S2 Non-Traditional Completion • Collected from EOY Student Record Collection Report

  23. Local Plan and Performance Standards • Section of Perkins Local Plan and Budget Application called “Performance Assessment” • Your actual percentages are shown and the new percentages you are striving for are determined • Plan and use of funding should be driven by these standards

  24. Plans of Study • Perkins refers to these as “Programs of Study” • Developed from requirements in Perkins • Utilize Career Pathways from Career Clusters • Schedule 2 of Perkins Local Plan and Budget Application • Develop a minimum of one each year until you have one for every CTE program offered in your division

  25. Plans of Study • May Use State Sample or create your own • Must be done in conjunction with community college or college or both • These are the basis for the new Academic and Career Plans which are slated to start in 2011-2012 • Virginia CTE Web site: •

  26. PERKINS FUNDS AND REIMBURSEMENTS • See Superintendent’s Memo #090-10 for Allocation at Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Act of 2006 (Perkins IV) Federal Funds for July 1, 2010 through June 30, 2011 • These are issued each year between April and June, depending on notification by USED

  27. PERKINS FUNDS AND REIMBURSEMENTS • Required and Permissive Uses – included in the Local Plan, “Welcome and Instructions” tab, beginning at Line 285 as “Appendix B” • Virginia requires that a minimum of 60% of funds be spent on “Required” and no more than 40% on “Permissive” • Cannot spend more than 32% of your total allocation between July 1 and October 1 of each year

  28. PERKINS FUNDS AND REIMBURSEMENTS • Must have an “approved local plan” before spending, with the following exceptions • Professional Development during the summer (Required Use) • Student Organization summer conferences/training (Permissive Use) • Keep in mind the 32% total allocation limit for July 1 to October 1 • Must spend all State Equipment Funds before using Perkins funds for equipment • If you participate in a regional technical center, a percentage based on students attending must go to the center

  29. PERKINS FUNDS AND REIMBURSEMENTS • Maintenance of Effort • Federal law requires that states and local divisions maintain a certain level of funding known as “maintenance of effort” or “MOE” • The MOE for school divisions would be based on the local funding spent on CTE in the school year 2006-2007 • This includes what a division spends on salaries, consumable supplies, pro-rated utility costs for CTE labs/classrooms, etc.

  30. PERKINS FUNDS AND REIMBURSEMENTS • SPECIAL ATTENTION ON SPENDING FOR: • Career and Technical Student Organizations (CTSO) [Permissive Use] – may only use Perkins funds to send one advisor per student organization per school to any activity/conference • Remember that your 40% limit plays a role in how much you spend • Remember that you have regional, state and national competitions

  31. PERKINS FUNDS AND REIMBURSEMENTS • Teachers’ Tuition for College Courses • The expenditure must meet the following criteria: reasonable and necessary. • The use of funds must be cost effective. In other words: • If multiple teachers need a course, check to see if the tuition would be cheaper to offer a class in your division or region; and • you can’t pay for someone to take a college-level course in Hawaii during January when the same course is taught in Virginia.  The only way an out-of-state or out-of-region course would be approved is if it is not offered in Virginia or within your region. • Look for possible on-line courses or courses offered at your local community college or college/university.

  32. PERKINS FUNDS AND REIMBURSEMENTS • Teachers’ Tuition for College Courses • Funds may not be usedfor initial teacher licensure courses. • Funds may not be usedfor renewal of a teacher’s license. • Funds may be used to offer a tuition-paid class for multiple teachers when this is more cost effective option.

  33. PERKINS FUNDS AND REIMBURSEMENTS • Teachers’ Tuition for College Courses • Funds may be used for individual teachers who need additional education/training for courses they are teaching. • EXAMPLE:  Teachers with a Master’s degree who need additional courses to meet the requirement of 18 credit hours in the field of a dual enrollment course. • EXAMPLE:  Teachers who have their teaching license but need a college-level course to prepare for industry certification for their program area and courses. • EXAMPLE:  Division requires a teacher to take a course which will allow for flexibility in scheduling to meet student needs.

  34. PERKINS FUNDS AND REIMBURSEMENTS • Industry Credentialing • May be used for Site Licensing for Industry Certification Testing and is not contingent on all state industry certifications funds being expended • To utilize Perkins funds, it must be in your local plans (assessments) • Perkins funds cannot be utilized for student reimbursement until a school division has used all state industry certification funds • May be used for teacher industry credential training and testing if not offered by the DOE or classes were full

  35. PERKINS REIMBURSEMENTS • YES: • Sustained Professional Development • Must be over two days in length • May be a series of days throughout the year on a specific topic (prior determination) • If you are not sure – CALL Director or Cluster Coordinators • Transportation: Do not list by gas, bus, driver, etc. as this is not necessary, list what it was for (conference, etc.) • Textbooks: Classroom resource set ONLY

  36. PERKINS REIMBURSEMENTS • YES • Equipment: Only items listed on state-approved Equipment list or approved by DOE program specialist and cluster coordinator • REMEMBER: Whether it cost a $1.00 or $15,000, it goes on your equipment inventory

  37. PERKINS REIMBURSEMENTS • NO: • Consumable Supplies: Paper (all programs), food (Culinary), gases (Welding), paint (Building Trades, Automotive Body), cloth (Fashion Design), workbooks (all programs) – just a few examples • INSTALLATION • REPAIRS • RECONDITIONED EQUIPMENT (used or repaired)
