  • Perkins Career Resource Network (PCRN)

    • Purpose of PCRN is an on-line resource for states interested in Perkins accountability, program and administrative issues and to communicate with other states with similar interests to share best practices.

    • Where to access PCRN:

    • Resources organized by:

      • Legislation & Policy Guidance

      • State Formula Grants

      • Accountability

      • Discretionary Programs

      • National Initiatives

  • Title I: Overview of Perkins IV, Section 113

    • Purpose of section 113 is to set out the Act’s accountability requirements and core indicators for performance at the secondary and postsecondary levels for all CTE students.

    • A) Review the sub-sections in Section 113 – (a) purpose, (b) state performance measures and (c) reporting

    • B) On PCRN, select ‘State Formula Grants’ from the left side menu, then select ‘Monitoring’, and finally select ‘Supplemental Accountability Check Sheet’. Review how well your state/district would do using the check sheet.

  • What is the non-regulatory guidance?

  • Purpose of the non-regulatory Guidance (NRG) is to provide structure and consistency to the Perkins core indicators and accountability efforts in light of the non existence of federal regulations on the Act.

  • On PCRN, select “Legislation & Policy Guidance” to find a link to the “Program Memorandum and Non-regulatory Guidance”

  • Final Agreed-Upon Performance Level (FAUPL)

    • Purpose of the FAUPL is to have an agreement between the Department and the State on student and performance definitions, measurement approaches, and baseline and performance targets for the core indicators.

    • State FAUPLs are attached to your states July 1 grant award. State FAUPLs are also posted on PCRN.

    • In using the FAUPL, consider:

      • how you might negotiate CTE performance with local districts and postsecondary programs?

      • how you might integrate analysis of local performance data to Perkins applications.

  • Title II: Overview of Perkins IV, Section 203

    • Purpose of section 203 is to set out the accountability requirements and core indicators for performance at the secondary and postsecondary levels for Tech-Prep students.

    • Section 203 is a requirement for states who have NOT merged, or have partial merged, Title II funding with Title I funding.

    • Even if your state has consolidated its Title II funds it will be worthwhile to look at the Tech Prep indicators.

      • A) Review the performance measures and determine is they are reasonable indicators that would provide valuable information about your CTE program

      • B) Discuss with colleagues, focus group, the value of the indicators in light of programs of study or CTE programs in general.

  • What is the Consolidated Annual Report (CAR)?

  • Purpose of the CAR is as a data collection and reporting format that allows states to submit their required data to the Department and allows reports to be generated from that data source.

  • The CAR is made up of three parts: 1) the narrative, 2) accountability data—enrollment & performance, and 3) financial status reports

  • To view CAR narratives, enrollment data, and performance data, go to PCRN, select “Accountability” from the menu, then select “Consolidated Annual Report”.

  • Users can create a customized report using the tool on the web page.

  • Important Note Concerning the CAR:

  • Secondary performance data is reported through EDFacts, not the CAR.

    • EDFacts:


    • Consult with your secondary education agency for the state reporting process

  • Helpful resources:

  • Perkins IV Data Accountability Guide

    • Posted electronically on PCRN

    • This guide fulfills two purposes:

      • it is a resource for identifying requirements contained in legislation and in non-regulatory guidance, and

      • it also provides a host of suggestions that should be viewed a Best Practices resource that states may (but are not required to) use when implementing Perkins IV.
