Share Your CTE Story

A A A

Tell us 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?

Personal stories are a vital tool when discussing the impact of federal legislation on local students, classrooms and teachers. ACTE will use your story on Capitol Hill when meeting with Members of Congress and their staff to discuss the important role of CTE in preparing students for 21st-century careers.
