The Kansas Board of Regents and Kansas State Department of Education staff are implementing the new Strengthening Career and Technical Education for the 21st Century Act (Perkins V) legislation. This Act reauthorizes the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Act of 2006 (Perkins IV). A new component of the legislation requires that states determine proposed levels of performance for the new state plan, spanning over a four-year period. Stakeholders have the opportunity to submit written comments regarding how the levels of performance meet the requirements of the law, support the performance of all concentrators, and support the needs of the local education and business community.
The proposed levels of performance and supporting documentation are available at www.kansasregents.org/CTE and written comments may be submitted through the survey link beginning September 3 through November 4, 2019. All comments will be responded to in the State plan.
