CTE Funding

A A A

On March 4, 2014, the Obama Administration released its budget request for Fiscal Year (FY) 2015. The budget proposes to level fund the Perkins Basic State Grant at $1.118 billion in FY 2015, with no increase for CTE National Programs either. ACTE is concerned that continued inadequacies in state Perkins funding are negatively impacting high schools, CTE centers, community and technical colleges, employers and millions of CTE students nationwide. Congress must make building our federal investment in CTE a top priority!

Data Quality Initiatives

With a growing national focus on data and accountability to help students succeed in education and careers, collecting high-quality data and sharing it across different agencies is more important than ever. For CTE, data quality and access issues include appropriately measuring student achievement, including the attainment of high-quality credentials; ensuring the quality of Perkins-funded CTE programs; and providing data to consumers on the connection between education and labor market outcomes.
