  • CTE Funding Spotlight: Toolbox for Education Grant

    CTE programs across the country are feeling the pinch of these difficult economic times. Cuts in federal funding for education and budget austerity at the state and local levels have become major challenges for many CTE educators and administrators. While there are many funding opportunities available through government and private foundation grants for specific education projects and initiatives, these are not always easy to find. To help bring much-needed resources to your CTE classroom, we have created this new CTE Funding Spotlight series. We will search out education, workforce training and CTE funding opportunities that are currently available and regularly highlight them on our CTE Policy Watch blog.

  • ACTE Weighs in on Department of ED’s Four-Year Plan

    ACTE recently submitted comments on the U.S. Department of Education’s draft Strategic Plan for Fiscal Years (FY) 2014-2018. Every four years the department develops a set of goals and strategic objectives to guide its future budget and policy priorities. The goals outlined in the plan include improving student access at all levels of education, increasing equity, developing the department’s own organizational capacities, promoting college- and career-ready standards and assessments, and improving high school graduation and postsecondary completion rates. Thought the department is currently closed due to the federal government shutdown, we are still working to make sure that there is a strong focus on CTE in future education policy priorities.
