 INVITE YOUR REPRESENTATIVE AND SENATORS TO VISIT YOUR PROGRAM  

As you know from recent action alerts from ACTE, Perkins funding legislation is moving forward in both the House and Senate, and Perkins reauthorization may be up for a full House vote soon. While the Senate HELP Committee has yet to approve its version of the reauthorization bill, we may also see action on reauthorization in the Senate as well in the coming weeks.

With important Career Technical Education (CTE) legislation brewing in Congress, now is a great time for your members to raise awareness of CTE by hosting a "back to school" visit for their Members of Congress. As you know, when Members of Congress are able to see a program working to help people in the communities they represent or meet with those who are working to provide CTE in their states and local areas, they are more likely to support CTE programs. Furthermore, a site visit provides a great opportunity for your members to showcase their successful programs and to develop and maintain good relationships with their Members of Congress.

Tips on how to arrange a site visit with Members of Congress

Background on Perkins reauthorization and appropriations

 

If You Can't Meet Them, Write Them

Encourage your state members to fax or email their elected officials asking them to support Perkins reauthorization and increased funding for CTE. It is important for Congress to know that CTE provides effective and proven links to skills-building opportunities and improved employment outcomes; that employers continue to need well-trained workers with good skills; and that CTE serves many in your community.
