    10. Florida’s Perkins IV State Plan HighlightsFlorida’s Commitment to Career and Technical Education Kathleen Taylor Senior Education Program Director Division of Workforce Education

    11. Florida’s Perkins IV State Plan • The State Plan covers July 1, 2008 through June 30, 2013. • Upon State Board approval, this Plan must be submitted to the Office of Vocational and Adult Education in Washington, DC on or before April 1, 2008. • The State Plan reflects Florida’s commitment to the continuous improvement of career and technical education programs and to providing equitable access to quality career and technical education programs to all students, including special populations.

    12. Florida’s Perkins IV State Plan • Statewide planning process involved over 80 practitioners with representation from school districts, postsecondary technical centers and community colleges. • Five regional hearings were held to provide practitioners with the opportunity to review the new requirements of the Act and make recommendations for incorporation into the State Plan.

    13. Florida’s Perkins IV State Plan- Tech Prep Perkins III – Tech-Prep Education Act (Title II) • Tech Prep program was a separate Title within the Act with its own federal funding stream • The Act defined Tech Prep as “programs that provided technical preparation in career fields such as engineering, applied science, a mechanical, industrial or practical art or trade, agriculture, health occupations, business or applied economics.”

    14. Florida’s Perkins IV State Plan- Tech Prep Perkins IV – Tech Prep Education Act (Title II) • Maintained as a separate Title within the Act with new definitions and separate performance accountability system • States have option to combine all or a portion of Tech Prep grant with funds received from the Basic State Grant Florida’s State Plan • Florida will consolidate all Tech Prep Title II funds with Title I funds beginning July 1, 2008. • The primary purpose of consolidating the two separate delivery systems is to infuse the recognized core Tech Prep elements into a statewide systematic framework.

    15. Florida’s Perkins IV State Plan- Programs of Study • Perkins III – Programs of Study were not required to be developed or implemented by the state and locals. • Perkins IV – No less than one Program of Study must be developed and implemented for each LEA receiving funds under the Act. • Florida’s State Plan – Florida will require secondary and postsecondary local recipients to convert stand-alone CTE programs to Programs of Study that incorporate the following elements in the Act:

    16. Florida’s Perkins IV State Plan- Programs of Study (cont.) • Aligns secondary and post-secondary education • Includes academic & CTE content in a coordinated, • non-duplicative progression of courses • Includes the opportunity for secondary students to acquire post-secondary credits • Leads to an industry-recognized credential or certificate at the post-secondary level, or an associate or baccalaureate degree.

    17. Florida’s Perkins IV State Plan- Programs of Study Florida’s Goal for 2013 Florida’s CTE Programs will be offered as part of a comprehensive Program of Study that incorporates the core elements identified in the Act.

    18. Florida’s Perkins IV State Plan- Programs of Study Options for Eligible Recipients Eligible recipients will be required to select an option as to how they will meet the new state program of study implementation requirements via the local application. • Option 1 - Eligible Recipient elects to join a Career Pathways Consortium and commits a minimum 1.5% of Basic Grant funds to support the consortium. Consortium carries out Program of Study requirements on behalf of eligible recipient. OR • Option 2 - Eligible recipient elects not to join Career Pathways Consortium and must expend a minimum 3% of Basic Grant Funds to carry out Program of Study requirements individually.

    19. Florida’s Perkins IV State Plan- Programs of Study

    20. Florida’s Perkins IV State Plan-Size, Scope and Quality • Eligible recipients must provide assurances that programs are of such size, scope and quality to bring about improvement in the quality of career and technical education (Section 134 (b) (6)) • Florida has developed new programmatic requirements for size, scope, and quality, which must be met by secondary and postsecondary eligible recipients.

    21. Florida’s Perkins IV State Plan-Size, Scope and Quality-Secondary What does “size” mean? • Secondary Eligible Recipients must offer a minimum number of programs* based on the percentage of CTE enrollment “large districts” = 5 CTE programs “medium districts” = 3 CTE programs “small districts” = 1 program * A CTE program must consist of 3 or more courses leading to fulfillment of the requirements of the Florida Gold Seal Vocational Scholars Award and meeting “concentrator’ status

    22. Florida’s Perkins IV State Plan-Size, Scope and Quality-Secondary • Eligible recipients must provide an opportunity for students to become CTE concentrators. • Concentrator= a secondary student who has earned three (3) or more credits in a single career and technical education program.

    23. Florida’s Perkins IV State Plan-Size, Scope and Quality-Secondary What does “scope” mean? • CTE programs must provide secondary students with opportunities for acceleration (dual enrollment/articulated credit). • Secondary and Postsecondary Perkins-funded CTE programs must be aligned with business and industry as validated by a local or regional business advisory committee.

    24. Florida’s Perkins IV State Plan-Size, Scope and Quality-Secondary What does “quality” mean? • Eligible recipients must provide students with the opportunity to earn an industry certification and/or licensure approved by the state. • Eligible recipients must provide students with the opportunity to participate in a CTE program that is classified as High Skill, High Wage, or High Demand.

    25. Florida’s Perkins IV State Plan-Size, Scope and Quality-Secondary What does “quality” mean? • Secondary and postsecondary eligible recipients should ensure that academics are an integral component of all Perkins-funded CTE programs.

    26. Florida’s Perkins IV State Plan-Size, Scope and Quality-Secondary Secondary Course Alignment to Size, Scope and Quality- Florida’s career and technical frameworks were studied to determine if: • they were aligned with the new requirements of the Act; • with the state’s size, scope and quality requirements and • if they were current with trends and future practice.

    27. Florida’s Perkins IV State Plan-Size, Scope and Quality-Secondary Criteria used for determining state-approved secondary CTE courses: • Is the course tied to a specific occupation? • Is it a viable part of a career pathway? • Is it transportable to the next level (or to the next CTE program)? • Are there actual skills developed in the course tied to an occupation(s)?

    28. Florida’s Perkins IV State Plan-Size, Scope and Quality-Secondary • Certain courses are no longer eligible to be supported with Perkins federal funding as of 2008-09, although state funding may still be used for them.  • Certain courses only be eligible for federal funding for one more year.  During 2008-2009, practitioners from the field will be revising these courses to meet size, scope, and quality criteria. • These decisions were made in accordance with the criteria presented earlier which, in turn, are based on the intent and expected outcomes of the Perkins IV legislation. 

    29. Florida’s Perkins IV State Plan-Size, Scope and Quality- Postsecondary What does “size” mean? • Postsecondary eligible recipients must provide an opportunity for students to become CTE concentrators*. * A postsecondary student who completes at least one-third of the academic and/or technical hours in a college credit/clock hour career and technical education program.

    30. Florida’s Perkins IV State Plan-Size, Scope and Quality- Postsecondary What does “scope” mean? • Perkins-funded CTE programs must be aligned with business and industry as validated by a local or regional business advisory committee.

    31. Florida’s Perkins IV State Plan-Size, Scope and Quality- Postsecondary What does “quality” mean? • Eligible recipients must provide students with the opportunity to earn an industry certification and/or licensure approved by the state. • Eligible recipients must provide students with the opportunity to participate in a CTE program that is classified as High-Skill, High-Wage, or High- Demand

    32. Florida’s Perkins IV State Plan-Size, Scope and Quality- Postsecondary What does “quality” mean? • Eligible recipients should ensure that academics are an integral component of all Perkins-funded CTE programs.

    33. Florida’s Perkins IV State Plan- LocalAccountability Local Accountability in Perkins IV • LEAs held accountable for meeting state targets unless LEA initiates negotiations on new performance levels based on defined criteria • In future program years, the Chancellor may impose fiscal sanctions on LEAs for low performance, no improvement plan or no increase in performance after improvement plan and technical assistance • In future program years, the Chancellor (with Commissioner approval) may award incentive dollars to LEAs

    34. Florida’s Perkins IV State Plan- LocalAccountability • During the 2008-2009 program year, eligible recipients will be expected to continually make progress toward improving the performance of CTE students. • FLDOE will be providing LEA level baseline information for 2006-2007. • During the 2008-2009 program year, FLDOE will consider requests for negotiation on 1S1, 1S2, and 4S1. • The remaining secondary and postsecondary indicators may be negotiated during program years 2009-2013.

    44. Florida’s Perkins IV State Plan-Distribution Formula Kathleen Taylor Senior Education Program Director Division of Workforce Education

    45. Florida’s Perkins IV State Plan-Distribution of Funds Distribute basic grant funds to the three delivery systems based on proportionate share of total career and technical education full-time equivalents (FTE) 1. Secondary - District Programs (District 7-12 Career Education FTE) 2. Postsecondary - District Programs 3. Postsecondary - Community College Programs A three-year average FTE has been calculated for above categories. The average of 2004-05, 2005-06 and 2006- 07 FTE is being used to distribute basic grant funds for 2008-09.

    46. Florida’s Perkins IV State Plan-Distribution of Funds Sector Allocation Formula: Total Secondary Percentage(%) = Total Secondary FTE 3 year average amount Total Secondary FTE + Total Tech Center FTE + Total CC FTE 93,095 93,095 + 22,638 + 65,229 = 180,961 93,095 180,961 = 51.44% total of the 85% goes out to secondary

    47. Florida’s Perkins IV State Plan-Distribution of Funds

    48. Florida’s Perkins IV State Plan-Distribution of Funds Allocations to Secondary Programs- Based on population counts (Census) as prescribed in the law. (http://www.census.gov/hhes/www/saipe/saipe.html). • 30% based on each school district’s proportionate share of the total population of children ages 5 through 17 who reside in the state of Florida (total population) • 70% based on each school district’s proportionate share of the number of children in poverty ages 5 through 17 who reside in the state of Florida (children in poverty)

    49. Florida’s Perkins IV State Plan-Distribution of Funds Allocations to Postsecondary Programs- Florida uses a federally approved formula based on financial need. Formula elements: • Recipients of Pell Grants, • Participants in the Job Training Partnership Act Program replaced in future years with participants receiving services above the core level in Title I of the Workforce Investment Act, • Recipients of Student Education Opportunity Grants,
