How Has Federal Funding Impacted You?


October 21, 2013


How Has Federal Funding Impacted You?

Back in August, ACTE launched its “Share Your CTE Story” web page to allow CTE teachers, administrators and counselors to share with us personal stories about their CTE programs, including how federal policies are impacting their students and classrooms.

Currently, we’re looking for stories that tell how recent reductions in Perkins CTE funding have impacted your program and students. How significant are the cuts your program has experienced? Have you had to cut back on course offerings, enrollment slots, staffing or student support services? Are you able to keep your program equipment, textbooks and infrastructure up-to-date and relevant for today's in-demand career fields—or have you delayed purchases or upgrades?

Stories submitted through the “Share Your CTE Story” page will be used on Capitol Hill to show policymakers how their actions in Congress affect constituents back home and to garner their support for CTE.

If you don’t have a story on funding cuts, we would love to hear other stories about your program. Other types of stories we’re looking for include:

  • student success
  • community and business involvement and partnerships
  • the impact of other federal policies  on your program
  • positive program elements that are benefiting students and should be supported through federal policy
